   Friday’s spring rains didn’t deter the indomitable spirits of cancer survivors nor the spirits of those who have lost loved ones to the disease, as Relay for Life moved indoors.
   The Grenada National Guard Armory was packed as the celebration, which normally takes place at the high school football field, moved inside to escape threatening skies.
   Local crooners belted out spiritual and country favorites inside the open bay doors on the west end the building as families sat at long tables, shared stories and laughs and prepared to walk circles around the large structure.
   “You never know when this awful disease is going to affect you or your family,” said Benita Cox, who also came to watch the dance troupe, Kontroversial Kids.
