I will be forever grateful for what you did for my dad and my family!
Today while wishing to one of our neighbors who helped a lot my family in India, especially when my dad was very ill. This was 2 years ago.
Is "will be" in "I will be forever..."correct ? or "I am forever grateful..." correct?

"I will be forever grateful..." is the most common form of that expression, IMHO.

"I am forever grateful" is OK--nothing is wrong with it--but "I will be forever grateful" is slightly more colloquial: not only are you grateful now, but you intend to (continue to) be grateful in the future.
