A week and a half ago, Grace, beloved sister of Tori passed away after an extended battle with an abdominal cyst.
Despite her health problems in the last months of her life, Grace continued to have a zest for life.
She was always the first out of the nest at dinner time, and she continued to love digging, burrowing, chewing cardboard, and playing with timothy hay.
Although Grace was fiercely independent in her younger years, with little use for companionship from anyone other than her sister; as a senior, Grace was gentle and a pleasure for us to spend time with.
In her final months, Grace enjoyed time with both her sister and us.
Grace was laid to rest in a private ceremony on a beautiful day, last weekend.
Grace is survived by her sister Tori and her brother Ryan.
