I have fond memories of visiting my grandma Florence and going to play with the cousins. sitting in the cherry trees and eating them till we were sick. Jumping the ditch out back of grandmas house on the way to Uncle Grant and Aunt Nolas or going to Grandma Greats house and jumping in the leaves of the tree stumps Later I remember when Aunt Nola headed up the family reunions in the Perry park and how nice it was to see all of the extended family. Uncle Grant was only 5 years older than my Father and I know they were close and spent time together when they were younger. They were close enough that my dad named my Brother after his two uncles Lawrence Darwin Wight. Love your family even though as the years have passed life has taken over. I will always remember those days and visits as some of the best and most care free days of my life. Love You all
The loss of a true friend is keenly felt and this is the case in loosing Grant. I have hope to be with those we love soon and send best wishes to Nola and the family at this tough time. I know there is great rejoicing on the other side of the veil but we will be there for that reunion soon. Don Thompson

Received a message today that Grant was hanging out with dad again. He is such a great guy and know he will be greatly missed. With 10 siblings and his parents waiting to greet him I’m sure there was a grand reunion. Our prayers of comfort are with your family as we know it is so hard to see them go. All our love!
