Torrie Jannelle Griggs, a 2015 graduate of Yuma High School passed away suddenly on January 2, 2019. A funeral service will be held Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 10.30 a.m. at the St. John’s Lutheran Church.
In Torrie’s memory, and as a fundraiser for her family, Skylar Heath is selling bracelets at Wags & Whiskers Grooming/Boarding on Friday afternoon. Wags & Whiskers is located at 213 South Main in Yuma.
Torrie loved animals, especially dogs. She had plans for a career taking care of them, so Skylar designed a bracelet that has paw prints, with the colors blue and black, Torrie’s favorites.
The bracelets come in adult and youth sizes. Adult bracelets are $3 and youth bracelets are $2. She has been taking orders on Facebook and those bracelets will be available. She said not to worry if you missed ordering a bracelet, most likely she will make a second order.
On the inside of the bracelet it reads “A Beautiful Soul is Never Forgotten.”
