I didn't know Pat. But back in the eighties she and her family often visited our area. She would come in the restaurant for breakfast with kids,friends, grandchildren, and Bud. It was not difficult to see who was in charge. Pat was the center of the group and obviously a very loving mother. Learning about her volunteer work was news to me, but not surprizing. What a wondeful woman.

I am so sorry to hear about your's and your family's great loss. To a man I consider one of my biggest heroes, I know she had to be a great woman, and reading how she gave of herself, I would expect nothing less. I hope you can see her live on with your kids, grandkids and great grandchildren? You were and will be regardless, my favorite Viking coach, no matter what happens down the road. The wins you had for so long, with teams that most of the time were low on payroll but you always got the absolute best from all your players. I'd be willing to bet your wife had a lot of the same traits. I wish there were words that could help with the loss. I know my grandparents were married close to 65 years and how hard it is. But I also know you've always been a family man, and I know you can find joy with your family, until your reunited with your life long love. She and your entire family will be in our prayers.

I read this story last evening, when I woke up this morning, I still had a lousy feeling about this loss. I never met Pat Grant but can only imagine how she will be missed by her family and friends. I truly express my heartfelt sorrow and sympathies....I feel like I've lost a loved one. My prayers and good thoughts are sent to the Grant family.
