Pat Grant was an incredible human being whom I strived to emulate. She made one want to be a better reader, a better writer, a deeper thinker, and a more loving, caring human being. The world is less for her physical loss, but I know that her spirit will survive in Elisabeth, Pat's friends, former students, and all who were touched by her life. My prayers and sympathies to Elisabeth for this delayed tribute as I just discovered the news.

I, too, love William Faulkner, Nadine Gordimer and J M Coetzee. I wish I could have talked to Pat about these authors. The obituary was fascinating, so much I didn't ever know about her.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

That's the truest obit I've ever read. ... I took my undergrad from LA Tech and wrote briefly for the Monroe paper ... Could it be I never met Pat?

Many memories of Pat from the Kimpel Hall days. I remember what a Razorbacks fan she was. May the four winds take her safely home.

Elisabeth, We are so sorry to learn of Pat's passing. I fondly recall the times spent working with her at Window's, I loved her wit and the banter between us. And I'll never forget the time you were heading to a conference and your car broke down. I thought Pat was going to have a heart attack! She was so worried about you we had all we could do to try and calm her. She loved you so. You were so lucky to have her in your life. We all were. Today is Pat Grant Day in Fortuna, CA--I'm wearing jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers in her honor! Chris, Roy and Sarah Frostenson

What a remarkable lady! I miss the wonderful conversations we were fortunate to have...she once said to me about the patrons of Windows, "Everyone has a story". She valued each story, made each storyteller feel important, and continued sharing one of her greatest gifts...her love of reading and the knowledge it brings. Thank you, Pat. Your story was amazing!

One of the things I miss most about Louisiana is visiting "Windows" and seeing Pat and Elizabeth. She will be missed.
