Grace was born February 9, 2012, to Andrew DePriest and Cindy Garrett DePriest in Fort Pierce, Florida. She was so sweet and touched the lives of everyone who met her; and she gave the best hugs and kisses!

She was the light of our lives; the star of our hearts and she leaves us smiling through our tears at our memories of her.
