The Chatman's (Michael & Valerie) extend their deepest condolences to Emily and her family. May God grant you peace in the days to come. We will miss Mr. Grant. We have fond memories of his excitement when Valerie would lead songs on the Springfield Baptist Church Sanctuary choir. She was affectionately known as "Ms. Shirley" because he thought she sung like Shirley Caesar. Take your rest Mr. Grant. #ButGOD

I've only met Uncle Frank once in my life and I only wish that I really got to know him. Never met my grandfather Manny Grant who passed before I was born. Sad to see him go but I know we all have to leave this earth at one point. My love to the family even if we never got the change to meet or speak I hope that will change soon. Love Raheem Grant grandson of Manny and Rosalie Grant.
