SAN ANTONIO – With every stroke of the golf ball, a tribute to the life of Grace Seward.
“She was a little dynamo. She was bold,” said her father, Butch Seward.
Her brother, Christopher Seward, said her sister was a light in the lives of many and was dedicated to those she loved.
“She didn’t have any friends. She had family,” Christopher said.
In 2018, police said Seward and a friend were at a club when an argument broke out between them and two other people. Seward and his friend left the club, but when they got home a car pulled up. It was then that police said two people got out of the car and started shooting. Both women were shot in the chest and taken to hospital. Seward failed to do so.
Three years later, no arrests have been made.
