There were 3 things that guaranteed a smile from Grant: Jenny, fishing and hunting in that order! Jenny was his world. He would light up when she was around. She said, "Grant graced us with enough love to last a lifetime". When visiting Anne, Paul, and Jenny on Perdido Key, he would spend many hours fishing or throwing a cast net off the dock. He was very lucky to have a second family in Brewton, AL. Danny and his son Keith would take Grant fishing and hunting every year for over 31 years. Grant was at peace on the water and in the woods. Now he is at peace with God.
In lieu of flowers, his family has asked that donations be made to the Center for Independent Living of Northwest Florida, 3600 North Pace Blvd., Pensacola, FL 32505 or National Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance www.ntsa.org.
