World-renowned contemporary Christian artist Amy Grant took to social media on Monday to share of the passing of her beloved father, Dr. Burton Grant.
Dr. Grant, a well-known oncologist, passed away at 86 years old after an extended battle with an unknown illness.
The artist took to Instagram following her father’s death to share a special tribute.
“Walking our dad home has been a 10 year journey, taking our family places we never imagined. We are all closer because of it. I’m so grateful for my dad,” she posted alongside a photo of her and her dad.
The singer then went on to share about her father’s upbringing, stating that he was young when his own father passed, leaving his mother to pay for his education.
“My grandfather passed away when my dad was a teenager,” she explained. “When my dad decided to become a doctor it was his mother, my grandmother, who paid his way through school. Years after my grandmother passed, I found his graduation program in a box of her things with a note from my dad. It said, ‘Mother, I hope I will serve mankind in such a way as to justify your faith in me. Love, Burton.'”
She celebrated her dad’s accomplishments by signing off, “Well done, Dad.”
