On a windy evening in early October, Gracie Elizabeth Hindman gusted her way into the lives of her parents, Nicole Danielle Cash of Pawnee and Clinton James Hindman of Ponca City. The day after Valentine’s Day, she left a trail of broken hearts as she drifted back to Heaven, taking with her the sweet kisses, goofy grins and wise, blue eyes.
It is our honor to provide a meaningful, affordable
life celebration for your loved one.
Although she only lived for 137 days, she was destined to have pistols firing as she donned her OSU orange to watch sports with her daddy. She was, however, a girlie girl and looked especially precious in pink and outrageous bows. She developed a particular fondness for lying snuggled under her Grandfather, Rocky’s chin and always had a special smile for her Grandmother, Melinda. She also had a crazy, fun relationship with her Grandmother, Sheri, with whom she loved to teeter-totter.
She was an avid thumb sucker, and according to her daddy (who she had wrapped around her little finger), she had a thumb made of sugar. She was enthusiastic about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Curious George. She also enjoyed swinging and kicking her feet at things, especially her play mat piano and her mommy’s boobies.
She was very happy to be with her best, four legged friend, Rupert the cat. She found him particularly hilarious.
In addition to her parents, Sweet Gracie was loved and cherished by several uncles and aunts who will continue to love and cherish her, even though now Heaven separates them. They include: Nick Cash of Jet, Chace Hindman and Ashley Campbell of Oklahoma City, Kisen Sharp of Alva, Alisha Campbell, Shannon Plott, and Shawn LaBlue of Houston, and Nathan and Natasha Hindman of Blackwell.
In addition to many great grandparents, she is also survived by her grandparents, Rocky and Melinda Cash of Pawnee, Sheri Sharp of Ponca City, and Clint and Denise Hindman of Blackwell. Also, she is survived by a host of cousins who will miss out on a lifetime of mischief and spiciness due to her early departure.
The funeral will be held at the Jet United Methodist Church, 301 North 3rd Sreet, Jet, Oklahoma 73749 on Friday, February 20th, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. with a grave site service to follow at the Jet Cemetery. Flowers can be received through the funeral home at 309 East 4th, Helena, Oklahoma, 73741. All financial donations may be made to help defray the costs of the funeral at PO Box 126, Helena, Oklahoma 73741. The funeral home will act as custodian. The family asks that those in attendance of the funeral wear yellow or pink to celebrate Gracie’s life.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Gracie's family. No parent should ever have to lose a child. She was such a ball of sunshine, loved by all. I can only imagine the pain you are experiencing. Please know, that Our Heavenly Father knows how hard this is on you. He is near to those who are broken hearted and crushed (Psalms 34:18). He promises to rid the world of death, sickness and reunite us with our loved ones again- you with little Gracie (Revelation 21:3,4; John 5:28,29). It is my hope that these scriptures provide hope amidst a time of sorrow.
Gracie was one of the Sweetest babies I've ever been around. She was always happy and taking everything in. I was so tickled to hold her the first time and any time after. I always had to apologize to Clinton and Nicole because I would forget to say hello to them when I walked in the door. Just wanted to hold Gracie ! My heart goes out to you and your family.Ive lost one of my little ones as well. I will always pray for you. Gracie , you were so precious ! I miss you ! Love you sweet baby girl !
