Full of grace

Through the wonder of showbiz, a sponsee learns about love, service and following her dreams

I had just heard that my sponsor of eight years, Grace, passed away. She’d had a serious stroke about six years earlier and couldn’t talk well after that. She made every effort to learn to talk again and there was no greater fighter than Grace.

When I heard about her death, a friend and I drove to the trailer court where Grace lived. We stopped at the trailer I thought had been Grace’s. But the lady living there now directed me to the office. The manager was pretty emotional about Grace’s passing. I could tell she hated to be the one to tell me that she died.
