Laura, this is such a wonderful and touching tribute to your mom and dad. I just want to give you a big hug and thank you for all your work and for your concerns for the nation and we humans who inhabit it. Thank you so much. Jim in Bethesda.

Dear Steve and Laura, I have wonderful memories of great times spent with your mom @ Pastors Wives Retreats when my late husband Mel and I were serving the Eleele Baptist Church on Kauai. I will always treasure her special handmade gifts. Both your mom and dad were loved very much. God bless and comfort you.

Steve & Laura, Your parents were great influences in our lives 30+ years ago and continued to be as we moved on from Hawaii. Your mother encouraged Allen to help her teach 5th-6th grade kids all those years ago. What an awesome seed she planted in him as he has continued to teach 6th graders ever since then. Now she is rejoicing with Dub standing before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ---Praise the Lord!!
Our deepest condolences on your loss, Allen and Kathy

She more than lived up to her name (Grace) and left a legacy. You should be proud to have called her mom!

Grace, my thoughts, love, prayers, and gratitude are with you, praising God for the blessing of your life upon me, Master's Touch Hula Ministry, and my family. May you sense our Lord's presence, wrapping you completely in the Light of His Love and Peace. I will never eat another chocolate chip cookie again for the rest of my life without thinking of you. Also, I had a patient here at Maui Memorial Medical Center who told me his wife was an inmate in Kentucky when we visited, and she could not stop talking about the miracle of being visited by Master's Touch and receiving all those wonderful cookies!!! She is out of prison now and doing well. MUCH LOVE TO YOU, GRACE! - Danette

Dear Grace,
September 12th is a special day because it was on that day you and Dub came to minister at Kona Baptist Church. It is great that Laura set up this website so we can stay updated and know more specifically how to pray for you.
It was 45 years ago that I joined Kona Baptist Church and was blessed to meet you, Dub, Steve and Laura. You folks will always hold a special treasured place in my heart.
Praying for you and your sweet family, ALWAYS. May you improve daily in God's mercy.
With God's Aloha, Barb

Hello Grace, I can not express how happy I was to see this blog on Post Hope for you. Thank you Laura for setting this up for all of us out here who love your Mother, Grace and your Dad so much. Being so far away physically, this helps to feel so close. I love all the pictures and the messages that are so inspiring. Grace, I know you remember when we were there in Milliani when my husband, Dick became ill along with Bob Steele. You and Dub and our whole church were such a blessing. Know that you have been and will continue to be lifted in prayer for His perfect peace, comfort and healing. I have always admired you as a very special sister in the Lord. Wish we could talk on the phone like we did occasionally....some day we will forever. If I could only give you a hug.... Stay strong in the Lord and know you are in our thoughts and prayers daily. Aloha au ia 'oe!!! xo

Hi Grace
I'm sorry I haven't written sooner. I have been pretty swamped with a new position at my company. I got a promotion and now am the Director of Inflight for Frontier Airlines. I haven't had a day off since I started but I wanted to write you a note just to let you know what I've been doing. I think about and pray for you and Big Laura every day. I hope you continue to have strength and courage as you heal. You are surrounded by lots of love, brought to you near and far.
Blessings with love,
Little Laura
