The support that we have received over these past few months has been more than I would have ever thought possible. A few weeks before my father passed away, he heard about the GoFundMe page (that our dear friend A.J. Ellis took it upon himself to set up) reaching $10,000 in his support. He said, "I didn't know that many people cared."
I think he knew, though. He was unrelentingly humble about his accomplishments -- sometimes to a fault. But that's only one of the countless reasons that I looked up to him and loved him more than even he would have been able to express.
And remember, though my father may no longer occupy our physical world, he will live on in all of us who continue to fight until our very last breath.

He was quite a MAN.ReplyDelete
I wasn't aware of Mr. Grigg's passing. I wondered why he hadn't posted any article for a while.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry to lose him. He was one of the most intelligent, brilliant writers I have ever read.
The world is suffering because of his absence and his wisdom.
My best to his family.
Yeah, he was the man.ReplyDelete
It is sad that your father has passed.
His writing is excellent and he used it to lay bare the corruption of those who claim to protect society, while , perhaps unknowingly reminding people how to write intelligently and incisively, in a world less than intelligent communication.
I was one of those who received his work for free, thankyou,
I was very sorry to hear of your father's death. I hope and pray that your family has found some level of peace.ReplyDelete
He really was one of the great defenders of liberty. His passing is a tragedy for all of us who admired him.

May God bless you and your family during these saddest of days. I pray that God will bring you comfort and peace.ReplyDelete
He was one in a billion kind of guy and I was honored to call him my friend.ReplyDelete
Your family is constantly in my prayers.ReplyDelete
Your father is missed greatly. Praying for your family.ReplyDelete
Thank you for taking your time with us, the readers, followers, and friends of your father's. Like him, you too inspire others, like me, by your faithfulness to the sensibilities of others. I wish you, and all the members of your family, all the best, as you move forward with the strength, love, and commitment to helping others, the way others have helped you. God bless you young man, and thanks again for you post. It really lifted my heart to see your post.ReplyDelete
We are so glad to hear from you, and good news about the Go Fund Me page. I was unsuccessful in donating through one of the web pages, can send a money order. We appreciate his wit and wisdom, and because of recorded images and such Will Grigg will live on. You and your family will not be forgotten.ReplyDelete
I came across a picture of Will a couple days ago, on Facebook I think. It's been a couple months he's been gone now and the full impact of what we lost hit home. Who is going to fill that void? On a personal level we'll never know the loss as deeply as his family and close friends, but even to those who only knew him through his writing, the loss is huge. Who can replace Will Grigg? Will Jr., your father was a great man and I'm sure you're following in his footsteps. I will eagerly look forward to your writings if you decide that is something you would like to do.ReplyDelete
I loved his voice. His ability to articulate a problem and solution was unmatched. I miss him.ReplyDelete
Peace to you and your dear family.
My deepest condolences. I hope that you understand what your Father meant to us. He was a light, a beacon of hope in this morass that has become our country. He stood tall and gave us hope. Many times I wondered for his safety. I also wonder who will fill his shoes, perhaps.... no one.ReplyDelete
Unabashedly a warrior of truth, I was so shocked to read of his passing. I have read his wonderful writings for a number of years, I am not sure how many, but it was a place I was always excited to go to. So sorry for yours and the world's loss, what a wonderful person that had such keen insight into the truth and courage to speak it. God Bless,ReplyDelete
An invaluable voice of truth has been removed from us when we needed him more now than ever. However, I also know that God's plan for our lives is nothing like our plan for our lives and that Willim Norman is now in service to the Master of the Universe, who no doubt has him already gainfully employed and doing great things.ReplyDelete
Thank you, William Wallace, for reaching out to your father's base. I know that this is a difficult and painful time for you and your family, but I also know that when the Lord takes away, when He closes one door, He gives and opens up another as well. May you and your family be blessed and cared for, knowing that there are those here who keep you constantly in their prayers.
God Bless, and again, thank you.
He will be missed.ReplyDelete
Thanks you Mr. Grigg.
I corresponded with Will about getting his audio files onto the Web. That did not happen for one reason of another. I would still like to see it happen, and would be willing to do a lot of the leg work to get it done, if just given some guidance.ReplyDelete
How can I donate to your family now? William Grigg was a brilliant man and I would be honored to donate in his memory to his family. I am so sorry he's gone. I was devastated when I found out.ReplyDelete
You were one of my favorite writers. I was lucky enough to speak with you at length a few times, and you were as intelligent and humble in person as I thought you would be. I miss your take on current events.
You remind me of Hebrews 12 where it talks about the prophets who were beaten and abused, because they were too good for this world, and the world was not worthy of them.
You will be missed.
May he rest in peace and the perptual light of the Lord rest upon him.ReplyDelete
Sorry for his passing. I'm sure he would be proud of the way you demonize and oftentimes (but not always) mislead regular people in the name of ideologyReplyDelete
Anonymous, what leads you to believe that I have demonized anyone?ReplyDelete
Will was my favorite writer: insightful and such an unmatched skill with words and alliteration. A champion of the people. I came on here hoping for some update and am glad I did: your family is in my thoughts. It reminds me of my own father's passing some people's death leaves large ripples in the water.ReplyDelete
I had the pleasure of meeting your father in 1991 as we toured the South East together with a music group. One tour highlight was watching him play our national anthem with his teeth during warm up. The following year we toured North East and Canada. The highlight of that tour was standing outside an amazing theater in Montreal just before The Phantom of the Opera is to begin wondering if we could get away with scalping our tickets and going to the Expo's game.
Your father was an amazing man, a talented writer, wicked guitar player, and an even better friend. His talent generosity, wit, and humor profoundly touched my soul. In the year before his death we would see each other from time to time and say we would get together...but we never did. He was a friend in the truest sense of the word and I miss him dearly.
May God's blessings be upon you and your family. You are in my prayers.
