Lydia G. Grant, 80, passed away Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at her sister’s home in Naples, Florida. She was born July 8, 1938. Lydia was the best to her sister, daughter, aunt, niece, nephew and to a host of friends. Her longtime friend and neighbor, Anthony Durant, wrote “it’s a heavy reality of life that we all shall face in our lives. But the pain never lifts. It just becomes part of our everyday lives. I’m expressing my condolences and my blessing as I know she will not suffer any more on this earth. My bond with Lydia was one of true friendship, not just because we were neighbors, but because the almighty gave us a human opportunity to be a part of each other’s life. From Lydia I’ve received new bonds of humanity. On this day, I will mourn and ask God to keep me strong and to extend this strength to you as you are left with having to finalize her existence. I know she is in heaven and I know she will have a lot of questions. Her judgement day has been called and she must answer for her life. May the Lord embrace her and remind us that this day comes to us all. Blessings to you and may this transition be swift and without the struggles from petty relatives. You will be strong I know, but you are only human. So breathe anytime it gets heavy. And I’m there with you to share this loss, and to celebrate her life. Love you and prayers to help us cope, and may God bless us to strengthen our live, Amen!” Lydia will be missed by all who knew her.
