To the Family of Brother Sam Lee Grant,
Greetings to you from the Lord Jesus the Christ. I remember Brother Grant from our days back at Bethel AME Church in my home town of Passaic, NJ. He was the custodian and planter of flowers around the church, he maintained the all of the landscaping there and at the parsonage. In my early years in ministry he was always encouraging and sometimes a disciplinarian to me. A friend to my family and the community as well. Take your well deserved rest, Brother Sam Lee Grant, one day we’ll meet again.
