The clip Heidi's eulogy from Grace Is Gone (2007)
Grace Ann Phillips
was born in Newport, Indiana, on October 3, 1971.
She was a happy child
who loved spending time outdoors.
Once she even spent an entire summer
sleeping in a refrigerator box
in her mother's backyard.
She waterproofed it with garbage bags
so she could sleep in it even when it rained.
Grace was a brave woman.
She enlisted in the Army right out of high school.
She met my father, Stanley Phillips,
at boot camp in Fort Knox, Kentucky,
later that summer.
They married after training was over.
My father says that, to this day,
he's still surprised Mom said yes,
which is funny because Mom used to tell
my sister and me she was worried
he was never going to ask the big question.
Grace and Stanley loved each other very much.
They were best friends.
Anyone who knew Grace
knows she was a special person.
She was kind, generous, and funny.
She had a loud, silly laugh
you could hear
even when you were in the next room.
And she could sing better than anyone.
We'll miss her very much,
but we promise to always think of you
when we laugh, wake up,
