Gettysburg Times - December 4, 1999

Several years ago we wrote about an amazing young man named Grant Southwick, of Morrison, Colo., who spoke eloquently about the important role played by his grandparents.

Sadly, his paternal grandmother, Susan Heider Southwick, died this past summer, and we were recently invited to a "celebration" of her life given by her husband of 52 1/2 years, Paul Southwick, in suburban Washington, D.C. He is a former Associated Press and United Press reporter, and presidential aide and Washington consultant.

While the adults happily reminisced about Susan, a longtime Democratic activist and White House volunteer, and toasted her with champagne, four grandchildren were very much in evidence. Grant, now 15, has matured tremendously and has even lowered his golf handicap to his age. We were also fascinated to learn that the Southwicks together had calmly made up the invitation list well before Susan's death, choosing those who would mix easily at the celebration.
