It's hard to believe that 1-month ago today, you went home to be with the Lord. While we miss you more than words can say, I'm thankful that you're no longer suffering. The last 6 months were so hard on you, yet you never once complained or quit smiling (as evidenced in the pictures taken with the boys at Kenny's graduation and Eagle Scout ceremony in early June, just about a month before your fall). I asked you then if you ever cried over the many difficulties you had faced over the recent months. You said "No. I guess I figure, what good would it do?" I told you I sure would have (undoubtedly many times). Your memorial service yesterday was beautiful. You were loved by so many. Yesterday was also "National Be An Angel Day" - a day set aside to celebrate those who do good deeds and are kind to others. Coincidence? I think not. :-) In the picture section, I posted the poem and photo that you had framed and written a note on. We found it while going through some things in your room a few weeks ago. No worries -- you shall always be remembered and and your memory treasured forever! :-) By your hospital bedside I promised that "we'll take good care of these boys for you" and little Kenny said "and we'll take good care of them." (me and big K) Everybody says there's nothing as difficult as losing your mother, and that you never really quite get over it. Who knew they were so right?! Like most mothers & daughters, we had our share of differences along the way. A friend sent me this sweet note, which I have often read this past month: "There's a special bond between a mother and daughter, even those with struggles in the past. Treasure the good memories and forget the troubled ones. My mother shared with me a few years ago that at times she still misses her mother, who died in 1965. You're right, you will miss her. I think it's part of God's plan, so that one day when we are reunited there will be nothing but joy in the reunion. Praying that while you wait for that reunion, God's grace and comfort will be enough to sustain you." Love you, Mom. Miss you. Looking forward to seeing you again! Lisa

Ann loved her kids and grandkids. She lived to go out to eat and I was privileged to go with her one time. She shared her hearts desire to spend more time with her grandchildren. I saw Ann as she was fighting the cancer that tried to kill her. She still had a great attitude and we shared a meal, along with Doris and my husband, Ted. Afterwards we went to see Kenny Ii get his Eagle Scout award. What a great time! She will be missed.

A lot of people say that death is a part of life. If that is true, then why is it so hard when we lose someone we love? Life is full of uncertainty, yet we never plan to ever be without the ones we love and care for. We didn't know Ann that well, but reading what was posted by others, she seemed to be a person who loved to celebrate life. In her honor let us all do the same. Let's remember the person we've lost, as well as the joy and happiness she brought to so many. Let's make sure that the people we love and care about know it as much as we can tell them, because you never know when it will be the last time. To Steven Grant(our pop) and family, we love you very much.

But, even though distance separates us, know that all the Georgia cousins have agreed to put alerts on our phones at 2 p.m., Sat., Aug. 22. We will all stop whatever we're doing and pray for our sweet Ann and all her family. Special prayers are sent for Gary and Lisa. Know we're there in heart and spirit. May God comfort you all with His sweet Holy Spirit.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

The Georgia cousins all mourn the loss of "Anna May" Granddaddy Grant and Granny left a bountiful legacy with their five surviving children out of eight. Those children then had their own families which created a marvelous and wonderful family of cousins. Cherished memories during childhood recall the excitement of the Virginia cousins coming all the way to south Georgia. I remember the giggles through the nights that Debbi, Dodi, and I spent together during overnight stays. It's sad that distance, time, and starting our own families separated us from seeing each other. But, the connection is still their in our hearts.

Momma Ann, I have known and called her Momma Ann for over thirty years. The loss of Momma Ann is beyond words. The joy I have experienced over the years, from knowing Momma Ann can never be forgotten. I will miss sharing good news about our family. Of course, I'm going to miss our monthly meeting to shop at our favor stores and eating in Manassas, VA. Every month when we met she would have an elephant for me because I have collected elephants over the years. She collected cows and hats. I often think about the times when she and Gary will share an entrée at the restaurant. Momma Ann was amazing person, beautiful smile, a given person, soft spoken, and a kind spirit at all times. My heart is saddened, I know she's in no more pain. I will be here for you morning, noon or night. I have learned so much from her over the years its more than words can ever say. She loved her family so much which included Libby. One thing I do know is to be absence from the body is to be presence with the Lord.
Chantale left a message on August 17, 2015:
My last visit with my sister in law Anna May at the Winchester Hospital, was very uplifting to me. She was very positive and lively. She showed me her beautiful nails that were just recently done by her friend. She also showed me a beautiful blue hat which she said was given to her by her lovely, darling daughter Lisa. She was so proud of her daughter for all the things she has been doing for her. Anna May will be missed by many. I hope that the family can find comfort in her loving memory. We can obtain some peace and consolation by reading in the Bible Isaiah 25:8. Chantale Loiseau Grant

We did not know Ann, but we know Steve. We send our love and condolences to the family. Steve spoke very highly of Ann and after reading the condolences many others do as well. We are reminded of john 5:28-29 that states there will be a resurrection of our loved ones from a God who cannot lie (Titus 1:2) which brings comfort to all who love her.

Love you always, Georges/Marise Couloute
Doris left a message on July 30, 2015:
It has already been a week that her light was extinguished. However, her spirit lives on in those that she loved. And she knows that we loved her. Got home last Saturday and found the last birthday card she sent to me, signed (Ann, Favorite Sister). Now I have that to hold onto.
Steve left a message on July 29, 2015:
To Gary, Lisa, Katrina, Staci, Bridget and families my loving thoughts are with you. Ann greatly loved to travel to many locations around the US with Gary. I have many memories of my big sister. I remember our sister was named after our grandmother, Anna May Modlin . When I was a kid, my sister Anna May would drive me and my sister Dodi to the beach in her 1964 Ford Mustang. My sister was cool. I have fond memories of the annual Grant family trips to the state of Georgia/Florida to visit our Aunts, Uncles and cousins. Ann and Wiley would help our Father drive the long 14 hour trip. Our Mom would prepare sandwiches stacked in an empty shoebox to prevent us kids from damaging them. My sister Anna May gave our Mother a Ford Pinto automobile and Anna May and Dodi enrolled Mom in a drivers training class so that Mom would be able to drive on her own, and greatly increased our mother’s independence. Sometimes I was a pesky baby brother, and hid in the back of her car during one of her trips to the movies with her friends. I got in trouble, I only did that once. When our mothers friend Marietta moved to southern Virginia, Ann often drove her to visit. Ann and my brother Larry would remind me of funny stories of our Uncle Buster who tried to raise ferrets in his garage. She enjoyed typing and always helped me with reports while I was enrolled in school. I loved my sister. A gentle legacy for Ann is her daughter Lisa, who showed continuous loyal-love and a quiet strength as she kept us all updated daily during Ann’s illness. She encouraged us by her positive attitude during our hospital visits with her. Ann was brave as she survived cancer 3 times. Our sister really loved her grandkids, she loved being a grandma… her email was [email protected] The Bible can give us strength and with …”the comfort from the scriptures we might have hope”(Romans 15:4). I will miss my sister. Steve
Debbi Steinberg left a message on July 28, 2015:
Not only was Ann my cousin but she was also my very dear friend. I was always so excited when I knew she would be coming for a visit as she was several years older than me and could drive me places. Even though she was several years older we developed a wonderful friendship. She knew I loved collecting bears at one time and she would frequently send me a package in the mail that contained a bear. She was always doing things like that for others. I especially remember she would go to nursing homes and paint fingernails and toe nails too, I guess. Such a loving, caring person! When she found out about the tumor I told her I needed to talk about something with her. I told her I needed to know if she knew our Lord Jesus Christ. She was happy that I asked as she got to share her salvation experience with me. We have laughed, talked and prayed together and I am missing her greatly. I know she is having a wonderful time walking the streets of gold with all of her family who have gone on before her! God bless!
J. Larry Grant left a message on July 26, 2015:
After our mother's grave-side service, Ann turned to me and said, "this means that your visits will be less frequent." That proved to be the case. However, we stayed in contact via emails, US mail and a weekly phone call. During this last round of cancer treatment, I was always amazed with her positive out-look on the whole process. She would be the first to admit that physical strength did not come from within her but from Above. In conversations with Ann over the years, she did not use this term but we both shared the understanding that this life is "but a vapor." The Good News is, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and eternal life is guaranteed. I love you & miss you, sister. Rest in Peace.
Doris Sheridan left a message on July 26, 2015:
My sister touched a lot of lives, which is a testimony for her zest for life and her love of people. She fought the tough fight against cancer 3 times, but a fall ultimately took her from us. Rest in peace my dear sister. We know you are safe and no longer in pain.

Anna will be missed and remembered. I recently had the pleasure of seeing her in early June when we attended our grandon's graduation in Virginia. Sincere condolences. I believe that Anna is now resting cradled in the comfort and protection of God's arms. Precious Memories. "Hal"
