Mrs Grant and family,
May the Lord wrap his arms around you and your family during the loss of Mr Grant. I remember seeing him walk the neighborhood with the huge bag on his shoulder, also being friends at church and neighbors!
Bless you in the days to come!

My deepest sympathies to your family! Mr. Grant was a treasure! When I was a kid, whenever I was at my Granny's house on the Mill Hill, I would sit out on my Granny's porch and wait for this dear sweet man who made this kid feel so special! The last time I saw him was at Manna when he was there for Rehab. I walked in and said do you remember a little girl who would sit out and wait for you to bring the mail, especially the Sears Catalog to her Granny? He said I sure do "Sweet Georgia Brown"! It just made me smile, just like it did when I was a kid! Love and Prayers during these difficult days! Prayers for all, especially for dear Mrs. Grant! Love and Prayers from Georgia and Jimmy Dickard

Grant Family,
I am so incredibly sorry and sad to hear of Papa Ray's passing. I have so many precious memories of him. He was one of the best. I always loved his sense of humor and personality. He was a true gem and had the sweetest smile. He also gave the biggest hugs and the best high fives! I am thankful and blessed to have known him. I will cherish those memories of him and look forward to continuing to share them with Kenzie. I will be praying for you all during this difficult time. Sending love, hugs, and prayers to you all.

The Ray Grant family,
We are so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. He is a good man. When Daddy used to run the service station, I used to see Ray around town carrying the mail. I used to talk to him when I saw him in town. Those were some good times. We miss those times. But I know someday soon we will see our loved ones again. We are praying for y'all and If you need us let us know.

Grant Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss, Ray and Virginia were always like second grandparents to me. I truly adore the both of them and their sweet smiles. I went to church with them at East Pickens and Northside and their love for the Lord and their family was always evident in the way they lived their lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time but I know that Ray is rejoicing and having the time of his life and is just patiently waiting on all y'all to join. It was my pleasure to have known him in this life.
