  3. Words cannot express the sorrow and pain we feel for the loss of your precious Grant. My daughter Anna was a classmate of his and spoke of him often. She told me how he always had a smile on his face and was so happy. I could tell that he was such a special child with an infectious, beautiful personality. He most definitely held a place near and dear to her heart and she was blessed to have known him. Your family will be in our prayers.

  4. We had very little time with Grant at Webster Presbyterian but each time we did get to see him it was great – he was a great kid!

    After hearing his Great-Grandmother tell me about him, I knew I wanted to meet him. I finally got meet him last Easter – it was the highlight of my day. I was always hoping that my 10 year old autistic son could meet Grant. I know that he would have adored Grant.

    We at WPC especially enjoyed the time he spent with us at Vacation Bible School this summer and we all learned immeasurable lessons from him (and his sisters). Thanks so much for sharing him with us – and allowing him to minister to us!

  6. I will never forget Grant’s sweet smile and hearing him say my name… “Wowee” every time we saw each other and gave each other hugs. He was my bestest, bestest, bestest friend in the entire universe. He will always have a special place in my heart.
