Balloons with prize tags fly in honor of late Sidney Grant

Each of 40 balloons carries ticket redeemable for free book about Mr. Grant and his WWII bride. Family anxious to see how far they travel. One had reached Russell Springs, KY, K-Mart

by Susie Grant

LITTLE CAKE, KY - During a belated Mothers Day get together and cookout at the home of Susie Grant on Sunday, May 23, 2010, family members remembered Dad and Grandpa Sidney Grant ( 1926-2006 ) in a special and unusual way. Forty brightly colored balloons were turned loose as a memorial to him.

Balloons were released by the following relatives: Susie Grant, Edward and Sharon Grant, Allen and Rhonda Roberts, Caleb Roberts, Brook Roberts, Portia Roberts, Jacob and Brittany Roberts,Gracie Roberts, Braydon Roberts, Jackie and Wendy Grant, Jasmine Grant, Abigail Grant, Billy and Hilda Smith, Jason and Marguerite Smith, Brittany Smith, Tammy and Joe Morgeson, Zachary Morgeson, Chelsey Morgeson, Wanda French, Adam and Hope Cole, Lexie Cole, Shelby Cole, Michelle Powers and Paul Cruse, Devin Powers, Megan Powers, Amos and Carolyn Gaskins, Michael and Angie Hinkle, Mackenzie Hinkle, Jon and Jessica Gaskins, and Alexis (Peanut) Gaskins.


Each balloon had a tag attached with a promise of a free book, The True Story Of A German War Bride when returned to the wife of the honoree, who is also the author of the book. Susie hopes that all, or at least most of the tags are returned.

One of them did not make it too far and was found in a field only five miles from the original site by Mr. Wendell Burton. Another one was seen traveling south near the K-Mart shopping center in Russell Springs, KY.

It will be interesting to learn how far they traveled and who will turn them in.
