    My condolences, I am saddened to hear of Grover’s passing, I did not know Grover well, we grew up a few miles apart in Leon County, his grandfather and my grandfather were cousins. I knew the family well, I remember his parents and his grandparents. I suppose Grover was named after his great-uncle Grover Cleveland Cox who was known as “Cleve”. Cleve Cox used a crutch from a damaged leg from something, I never knew what.

    God bless you,
