I'm so sorry to hear about Uncle Bebo/Grant. Mother (Nora) loved getting visits from him when he came to Bristol before she passed away. I remember as a kid when he would come home from the Navy and visit. We loved those visits!
Aunt Margie let us know when she would get to talk to him especially a few weeks ago when he was in the hospital.
We are praying for you all.

Grant was a kind man who was a true friend. I’ve know him for 40 plus years. We always had a great conversation when I would see him in Lowe’s with his Grands. He will be missed.
Grant, I hope you’re riding your Harley in Heaven. RIP MY FRIEND!! Love you!
