Our 19-year-old daughter Grace, who had Down Syndrome, died on October 13, 2021, at a COVID hospital. She died because a doctor labeled her DNR and then proceeded to overdose her on Precedex, Lorazepam, and Morphine within a 30-minute window.

We are sharing Grace’s story so more people don’t needlessly die in hospitals during the pandemic.  The link below, from Newsmax, shares a portion of the story.


We are in the process of establishing a charitable foundation to honor Grace.  Grace had a love for the Lord and was a true light for Him while on this earth.  Her favorite Scripture verse was 1 John 4:8. She would include “God is Love” with many of her works of art. Any money raised through this site will go towards the establishment of the foundation and keeping her story alive.

Let us tell you more about Grace.

She enjoyed playing violin, horse riding, dancing, hunting, fishing and learning (especially geography).  She was creative and a wonderful artist.  She had a gift of encouragement and decorated pictures and cards to spread cheer and gratitude. Her efforts were always cheered you up.

Her sense of humor was wonderful. She was known for making up her own jokes. The first of many was, “Where do bees go to the bathroom?  The BP station.”  

Grace had many hopes and dreams, including driving, being a tour guide at Graceland one day (she LOVED Elvis!), and getting married. She was the best daughter a parent could ever have.  The sky was truly the limit with Grace, and we were blessed to have her in our lives for 19 years.

This is a tragic story.  However, we know that God is sovereign and will use this tragedy for good. We envision the foundation we establish in Grace’s memory to provide many people with disabilities the opportunity to share their talents and spread the light that Christ has placed in them with the world.

Thank you for considering a donation to our efforts to share Grace’s story and establish the foundation.
