Its with the heaviest of hearts we could ever have that we want to share with you that our precious little Grant Fieldon Brown left our arms, grabbed the hand of Jesus and walked right into Heaven last night about 10:45 p.m. He was attending a supervised day camp on Monday where swimming was part of the day and the unthinkable happened.
Carolynne and I are overwhelmed with disbelief and sadness. The outpouring of prayers from dear friends and families, colleagues, neighbors, ICU staff, friends of friends, and perfect strangers has been immeasurable and has touched us to our core. We are sincerely grateful for each of you and know that our Lord heard every word you offered up to Him. Please help us keep our grip on the cross, even when life is completely shattered.
To God alone be the glory for the beauty, joy, and fun Grants life brought to us and so many of you. We covet your continued prayers.
Jeff and Carolynne
Born: August 31, 2006
