    I just heard about Grant’s passing and I am so sorry…I used to babysit Grant when he was a toddler–the most beautiful little boy!! Full of energy and sweet. God must have needed such a special young man to take him so early. He is now your guardian angel- may you find some peace Pam. Again I am so sorry for your loss and I will remember him fondly-
    Prayers are with you and your family

    So sorry to hear about Grant’s passing. He was in my eng 111 comp course at Delta this spring. He had attended class everyday and I wondered where he went. I am sure he is in God’s hands and free of any ills or pains.

    I am sorry to hear about the loss of your dearest Grant. My family and I wanted to send our deepest sympathy to your family. I wanted to share a comforting thought found in God’s Word at Isaiah 25:8 where it says in part that death will be swallowed up forever. I hope that your family finds this text comforting as it did me and my family.
