Hi there! Is this correct?! Need a confirmation!!

Hi everyone! :D
I am trying to put something together in memory of my Grandfather who passed away as he was from Scotland and could speak fluent Gaelic. I'm trying to write "Friendship, family and love" and I this is what I've come up with: "Càirdeas agus teaghlach agus gràdh." I was told to put "and" inbetween all of the words. I would appreciate any feedback or confirmations of the saying since I have not had any luck figuring it out! Thank you so much! :)

would you not use 'gaol' instead of 'gradh'? never heard of 'gradh' apart from 'mo ghraidh' meaning 'my dear'

But Colin Mark's dict translates "gràdh" as "1. attachment, charity, fondness, love" and only then "2.object of love", and also gives these compounds: "gràdh-daonna philantropy, gràdh-dùthcha patriotism", so I guess it would do here as well, wouldn't it?
