    Rodney Grant is a great person. And a credit to his people. Many years ago, early 90,s after writing a fan letter, a month later I received a phone call from Mr. Grant. I was so surprised and delighted. He
    spoke of his career, family and asked about my life. He also wrote me a long typed letter on pc, he
    said. It is a treasured piece of meroabillia. Hard to believe he is now 59 years old. He is still active in Native American projects and causes. It has been a pleasure to know him as I do, we are all very saddened with the passing of h is daughter Jade. LIfe can be crusing. I want to wihs Rodney and
    his family, a healthy and happy New Year for 2013. I am now 76 years young and trying to get my childrens story illustrated books published. Wish me luck! with love and much affection Rita.

    Greetings Mr. Grant,

    You will be astonished at seeing my lines, but you will understand better reading my words.

    I correspond with your cousin (on his mother's side) William Webster (Billy) being wrongly incarcerated in Texas since 36 years. He is 68 years old.
    He did not mention that fact sooner, we spoke about the movie "Dances With Wolves" so he told me that you are his cousin. If you could write him from time to time he would be happy.

    I am a French woman living at Paris France.

    I thank you for your time reading my message.

    Jocelyne (Joyce) Meurgey
