About Us

Grace Elizabeth Shaw was and always will be our little angel. She captivated our hearts from the day she was born and we will FOREVER keep her close in our hearts. Grace Elizabeth was the most amazing daughter, little sister and a ray of sunshine to every one she encountered. Grace lit up each room she entered. Her famous line was, “I want a hug!” Grace was a wonderful little girl who fought hard and loved even harder. She loved to sing, “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and to dress up as her favorite princess Snow White. Grace NEVER gave up, and made everyone around her happy. Grace lost her life in a tragic accident in 2012, but will be forever remembered and cherished daily in our hearts and minds. Grace taught us more in six short years than we could ever have imagined about friendship, love, acceptance, joy and happiness. She will be terribly missed, but we know she will be waiting for us with open arms at Heaven’s gate wanting to give us a big hug!

About GESF

Grace was a fighter. She NEVER quit and NEVER complained. She lit up every room she entered and captivated the hearts of each person she met. The Grace Elizabeth Shaw Foundation, (GESF), was established in loving memory of our daughter and sister to assist children who embody that same fighting spirit all the while keeping a positive attitude, and persevere regardless of their challenges. It is our hope that through GESF we will be able to bless organizations that encourage kids to be kids and live life to the fullest regardless of their individual circumstances. Thank you for donating to the Grace Elizabeth Shaw Foundation. With your help, we will be able to continue to honor our daughter’s memory while blessing children throughout our community.
