A few years later, Grant and Sarah visited me again, this time in London. Their visit was one of the greatest joys of my time there. Sarah had researched all the wonderful places to visit, and as I tagged along with their tours I got to see much of the UK that I hadn't before their visit, including Braemar (where we also saw Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles up close), and Edinburgh. Grant treated me as if I were his best buddy, and I never felt like the odd one out when I was with him and Sarah. We had a blast! He was upbeat and full of energy throughout the entire trip.
I loved Grant because the first time I met him, Sarah was playing the piano at a concert. I'm pretty sure it was the day Mom (Sarah's grandmother) passed away, or the day after. Grant didn't fiddle around during Sarah's performance or let his attention wander. His eyes were on Sarah and I enjoyed watching him watch her. I could tell that his attention was sincere, and I appreciated that.
I also deeply appreciated the way Grant took care of Sarah while she was so sick with cancer. It was comforting to know she was in good hands.
I have missed Grant. There will always be a tender spot in my heart for him.
