11: "I love when Grace makes up songs and dances. She makes me laugh so hard. She has a kind heart. And she's pretty. " --Mom
13: "Grace was always in little phases, you know, where she would be really into something. For a while she liked to be called Scooby-Doo. She loved cheetahs and the Power Puff Girls. She loved to go to the Lobo games and see Lobo Louie and Lucy. She called them 'You-E and Yucy Yobo.'" --Dad
14: This is my brother Noah. Sometimes he can be so annoying, but I miss him so much when I don 't see him.
16: "Crampa" "I heard ya I heard ya I heard ya"!! " | "Grace is an excellent driver...probably better than I am. So smooth. I can't believe how tall she is getting. I've notice how she has grown up so much...she is cooking, decorating the house, setting-up the electronics in our house... I remember she was very strong and athletic as a child. I remember she once carried a heavy lead pipe as a toddler through the gladiola garden. She had the most beautiful honey-blond hair (I wish she wouldn't dye her hair). I loved to watch her in synchronized swimming. One of my favorite memories is of her climbing the pyramid in Chichen Itza."--Grandpa
17: "Gramma" | Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6.

24: "I love Grace Chapman. I love being her uncle. I use to push her to do a lot of things...once we rode around Rio Rancho for miles on our bikes without any water. Another time we went to the river to canoe, but we only made it about a hundred yards before we tipped over. I grabbed Noah, who was a little toddler at the time, and Grace and Grandpa stayed with the boat. Grace helped carry everything back . Grace stayed cool throughout the whole thing."
25: "Grace is so much fun to be around. Someday I want to take her to Europe to see all the artwork, old buildings and different cultures. The world is truly a bigger place than we can imagine. " --Uncle Brad
