To the family of Mary Grace: Please accept my sincere sympathy. I served as the Vice President of Quality at Norwegian and worked with Mary Grace on a number of iniatives. I simply adored her! She had a gentle humble spirit and was always available to lead and/or assist as needed. Aside from her humility, she was very kind and gracious. She would always give tokens of appreciation for supporting her programs and I have been the recipient of her kindness. Mary Grace will be missed and treasured. She is now walking the streets of gold around God's alter and wearing a jeweled crown of glory. Broken Hearted, Sabrina

I asked her if she wrote the poem and Mary Grace told me she always wanted to be a writer for Hallmark Cards. Mary Grace was a beautiful,honest soul, she is resting in Peace. Much love and Gods Grace to the family at this time and always.
