I had the pleasure of being docked near Grant and Lynn on Brookville Lake, we always enjoyed there company. I never knew what a settee was until I meant Grant. He said he was going in to rest on the settee. I had to look it up to see what it was, best you Lynn.

When our son married Aimee, he hit the jackpot -- wonderful wife, fantastic mother-in-law, great brother, and soon, a new dad-in-law, Grant Blount. I was privileged to attend their wedding. What a celebration of love for each other. We did not see them very often at all. We did go on a trip to Yellowstone with Matt and Aimee and boys, Lynn and Grant, and us. What a time was had. I jokingly asked Grant to go to the store the next morning before coming to the campsite and buy me a larger pan to cook noodles or something. He turned with a smile and said "any idea what it will cost" and I replied "I think about $75 or so. He was dumbfounded. I finally had to tell him it was a joke but honestly, I am positive he saw no humor in it. We will miss you Grant. Thank you for being so good to our son and his family, to Lynn and Shane and his family. You leave a huge gap in their lives. S&L Bahnsen
