Barbara Grace “Gracie” Grevers. 10lbs. 22 inches. Born 12/1/19 at 11:29 a.m. You’re named after the most remarkable, grace-filled woman I’ll ever know – Barbara Ann Chandler. Though you two are not overlapping in life on earth, I know she’s rejoicing in your birth from above. It seems appropriate that you tipped the scale to the same hefty weight as your Mimi did at her birth in 1950. We love all ten luscious pounds of you, beautiful girl and pray you’ll eventually know God’s abounding grace which led your Mimi to leave an extraordinary legacy for us all here. “Gracie Grevers…” I remember Mom saying with a sparkle in her eye. “Sounds like a stage name.” Welcome to the big show, Gracie girl.
