I served with Grant in the Army both in Language and Germany. A good man and a good friend. We kept in touch occasionally and then we lost track a few years ago. Very sorry to hear of his passing and belated condolences to his family and friends.

My dearest, dearest friend, Ruth, dearest Scarlett, Joel and Phil: I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband, dear Ruth, your father, Scarlett, Joel and Phil, to Jays brothers and sisters, nephews, all of the Marshall family my dearest sympathy. I remember your wedding, Ruth, so clearly - like it was yesterday. I was so happy for you in your white, flowing dress - Jesse, Bob, Bert so handsome was Grant and you so beautiful and happy and nervous! You were smiling so bright and anxiously happy and glowing! Northwoods Spring House never looked so lovely. I was so very happy for you then and now. You have wonderful memories a full life. I love you and your family so your Mom and Dad dearest Bertie I just wish we could be there with you I wish we were all together as in the old days in the Valley. You have had so many losses and now, your beloved Grant. He was a kind man a wonderful, sweet and warm smile and so polite the few times I was with him. I was blessed and pleased to have known him if even a few brief moments in history. I am so impressed by all of his accomplishments! No small thing to have graduated within the Monterey Linguists School and to act as a Russian Linguist. In my minds eye he held a lot inside he could then never tell or repeat from the war years. I imagine, in part, that is why his brilliant and wise mind and person seemed so reserved and shy perhaps a great quality for one so close to holding so many, perhaps national secrets. He was a hero and an American patriot. Thank you for your service, dear Grant, for your life we thank God, for your friendship to many thank you for your love and partner, Ruth, your lovely children, Scarlett, Joel and Phil thank you.. and may your legacy continue and be proud. God bless and keep you your life will not be forgotten. You were loved the greatest of gifts our Lord says.and greatest of these.is love. All my love and prayers for peace and rest in God's Almighty Hand - Maggie Nolan

Dear cousin Jay Marshall, We had so many sweet memories from our childhood times at MamMaw and PapPaw Amos Lynchs Home, Christmas dinners on the steps of their farmhouse, trying to balance our plates, make space for all the Lynch cousins and celebrate our special times together...what special times. We were and are so blessed. You are joining our wonderful family around that grand table, joining in that eternal celebration of life and family. Hugs and love to all
