“You may have heard about Army Specialist Keith E. Grace, Jr. that was killed in action on August 11, 2013 in Afghanistan. Specialist Keith Grace was a Beach City resident and his parents still live here. I can’t find the words to express the sorry and even gratitude I feel for Spc. Keith Grace, Jr. and his parents Mark and Mary Lou Davis. There is no higher honor than what should be given to the heroes who lay down their life’s so that you and I can enjoy the freedoms born by their sacrifice. This same honor should be shared with the families of those heroes.


I extend my most sincere condolences to Army Specialist Keith E. Grace, Jr’s parents, Mark and Mary Lou Davis, and to all of his family and friends.


Funeral services will be held tomorrow at 10:00 AM in Baytown at First Baptist Church on Rollingbrook. The Baytown Chamber of Commerce is organizing a Tribute to Our Fallen Soldier. Please see the attached flyer for details. Please do what you can to show our respects and appreciation for Army Specialist Keith E. Grace, Jr.”
