Grant was a sort of loner when it came to "girl" relationships, not wanting to burden others with his life, In 2003, after reconnecting with his high school class mate, Anne, at their 5 year class reunion, he opened his heart and life to his "SPECIAL SOMEONE".
Anne was a very special person in his life and he loved her very much. The best times of his last 2 years were the ones that he spent with her. Although she lived away from Licking, MO, they kept in very close contact and he would get real excited when they would have time together.
When Grant began to get very ill, Anne took leave from her job in Texas and returned to Missouri to spend every minute by his side. She never left him again and gave him all the tender care and love that he deserved. The memories that we have of her beside him will always be with us.
Thank you Anne. We Love You.

LOOKING BACK ON THE MEMORY OF THE DANCE THAT WE SHARED 'NEATH THE STARS ALONE
FOR A MOMENT THE WORLD WAS RIGHT
HOW COULD I HAVE KNOWN THAT YOU'D SAY GOODBYE
AND NOW I'M GLAD I DIDN'T KNOW THE WAY IT ALL WOULD END, THE WAY IT ALL WOULD GO
OUR LIVES ARE BETTER LEFT TO CHANCE, I COULD HAVE MISSED THE PAIN......
BUT I'D OF HAD TO MISS THE DANCE
