Sending my deepest condolences to the Silvester family... what a treasure Grant was to us, his sweetness and gentleness will be forever missed. I'm so sorry not to be able to make it to the funeral as our newest grandbaby was born this morning, but my heart and thoughts are with you today. My heart was full thinking of my mom greeting her sweet cousin at the gates of Heaven❤️

I first met Grant at Suncor and at his beautiful home on Edgewood in Sarnia
Ran in to him here and there over the years, always a pleasure to catch up with him.
A true gentleman, RIP Grant

Julie, so sorry for your loss. Dave and I just mentioned Grant the other day, wondering how he was doing. Its ironic, Dave’s father, Fred just passed on Aug.20th. He had just turned 100. It’s hard losing parents, but memories will carry you thru. Love Sandy and Dave Lamourea
