Kristen Grady Milligan passed away peacefully on October 26 in her Pisgah Forest, North Carolina home surrounded by her beloved family.  She was 39.  Kristen is predeceased by her father, J. Michael Grady and survived by her husband, Deric Milligan, and their children, Ashlea, Luke, and Rebecca.  She is also survived by her mother, Lynn Grady, of Lakeland, Florida and her twin sister, Kim Brock, also of Lakeland, Florida.

Kristen, a graduate of Davidson College and Florida State University, was an Orientation and Mobility Specialist and Guide Dog Trainer by profession, but her true passions were as a wife and mother of three adored children.

Kristen’s legacy of caring for other young families with a terminally ill parent continues through Inheritance of Hope, a nonprofit ministry she established.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Inheritance of Hope via the Inheritance of Hope Legacy Fund established in memory of Kristen Grady Milligan.  Kristen requested that the only flowers at her service be chosen by her children.
