We are saddened to hear about David. We met him when we started square dancing in January 2015. He and his dance partner Agnes were always so nice to us. David was always very complementary. We haven't seen him in a while because Covid-19 caused us to cancel dancing. We are praying for all of his family and friends during this difficult time.

David Grant attended many of our White Book singings throughout many years. He was a friend and supporter of our singings at Hardeman Church, Decatur, Georgia, and also a friend of our family. We were always glad to see him and appreciated his interest. He will certainly be remembered and missed. My sincere sympathy and prayers for peace and comfort goes out to his family and friends. Sandra Wilkinson and family. Loganville, Georgia.

The obituary doesn't mention this, but David was a devoted Sacred Harp singer and supporter. That is the context in which I met him and enjoyed singing with him at singings in the Atlanta area and beyond over many years. He obviously had a deep knowledge of and love for Sacred Harp, and was one of the people who encouraged me and others starting out learning about shape-note singing. I remember him as a gentle man with a sense of fun and cameraderie that was infectious. My sympathy to his family, to those close to him, and to singers who were closer to his home and got more chances to enjoy his presence than I did. We will all miss him on this earth.
