Dearest Teresa and Loved ones, Our hearts are saddened over Grant passing, but we prayed for healing and God healed him. It wasn't healing we were praying for, but God knew best. Our prayers are that God will wrap His loving arms around you and the family and comfort all who loved him as we did. Our love to you as you go forward remembering we are always here for you!!
