    Grover was and will always be very dear to my heart. He was there for my family more than I could ever express. I always knew everything would be okay because he was looking out. I am forever grateful to have known him and to have had a friend like him in my life. Love you always Grover

    We didn't know Grover for very long but when my family moved to Kure Beach from NY a year ago, he was one of the first people that we met. We really didn't know what to expect or how we would be received here (being a Damn Yankee and all), but Grover immediately befriended us and made us feel welcome right from the first day that we met him. Our sincere condolences to all of his family and friends on the loss of a wonderfully friendly and fun man. May your good memories of him comfort you in your time of grief. Heaven just got another good one!
