I only knew Mrs. Bracewell for a short time, but she has a special place in my heart. Prayers for her sweet family.

Ms Ute loved to talk about her native home of Germany. I enjoyed listening because it was more special than reading about Germany in a book or online. Ms. Ute would also make sure we knew of her love for America. I have missed seeing her walk around the neighborhood with Mitzy but know she’s in a better place. Praying for the family.

There are so many great memories of you aunt Ute. Memories I will charish forever. Although it has been many years and miles between us, I can still recall when first I met you Aunt Ute. I had never seen such a fun personality. It gives me a chuckle even now how you would make us all laugh. I will miss you aunt Ute.
