Im Derek, One of the four grandchildren of Bob and Grace Sykes. I didnt sign anything the first time around and I came back to the site to check things out. There was countless memories of my grandparents. There has not been one day that I havent thought of them. They are sadly missed by all whose hearts were touched by them. Thank you all for your condolences and prayers as you guys are in my prayers. We love you grandpa & grandma
Mary Grace, known to the family as Grace, is my aunt…my mother’s sister. We will miss her so very much. She was a sweet and gentle lady with a strong will, fighting chronic illness yet never complaining. She loved all of her family and especially enjoyed the grandchildren. I will miss her stories about the sisters when growing up and Mal and I will miss Bob and she visiting us each year when in Florida. I am grateful for the many fine memories that I have of this lovely lady.
