Dear loved ones of Grant,
It has been nearly six months since this horrific tragedy. My prayer is for you to continue to endure in spite of the emotional pain that greets you each day. May you be comforted in knowing that our heavenly father knows how you feel and listens intently if you call on him and come and pray to him, he listens and will calm your heart. – Jeremiah 29:12

To Grant's loved ones, I am praying for you to have the "peace that passes all understanding" as God's word says He promised for bereaved souls. May you be comforted forever by the love of God and the memory of Grant.

While I didn't personally know Grant, I see that he & I both like giving things away! I would like to give his family & friends the hope of the time when the righteous, including Grant, shall possess the earth & live in an abundance of peace. Ps 37:11, 29

The world is full of men, but what of men noble and true?
Can you say that you have known such a man?
These  men are far too few.
But let me tell you a a story,
About a team of men
Who left behind a legacy 
That will not be forgotten.
Highly trained, 
They  passed every test,
Chosen to fight wild fires, 
They  were called the best.
One scorching June day in 2013,
When a wildfire raged 
The Hotshots were called upon
 To battle the fiery blaze.
Armed with tools and heavy gear, 
 They set out in their prime,
No job too hard for these men,
No hill too tall to climb.
Command  was set, plans were made
To tackle the fire's wrath
But winds shifted unexpectedly
And they were trapped in the fire's path.
19 men were caught that day,
The fire drew quickly near
Though they knew they were truly trapped,
Not a one showed fear.
Dig your shelters, men came the command,
Each one knew what this meant
They dug with haste and with one final look 
They took to their tents.
Then let us look away,
For we cannot bear
What came to each one next,
Each man endured in those fiery moments,
His final Hotshot test.
And when the aid finally found the men,
The blackened landscape bore
The testimony of death everywhere,
And the men who were no more.
Oh children, your father was so brave, 
A man who did his best
In work excelled, he fought to save, 
withstanding every test.
Dear widow, may you never shed 
another tear at some unhappy strife
For you've suffered enough dread
The day your husband lost his life.
Young sweetheart, your hopes and dreams
Lay in ashes,  from the fire's wrath
May you find hope and dream once more 
Though sorrow has changed your path.
Sad mother, your beautiful son, 
your joy and your pride
Whom you succored with patient love,
has bravely lived and bravely died.
Two prayers I pray for you, the first,
Though all hope now seem dim
May you have a hope in God,
And place your trust in Him.
Second, May something good, 
Something beautiful and strong
Emerge from this tragic loss
From something that went so wrong.
Then like a Phoenix from the ashes
May these men and their noble deeds
Live, for love is stronger than death,
In the lives of those who who stop here to read.
-Michelle Kendall and Family, Barnet, Vermont

I don't ever remember seeing Grant without a smile on his face. Almost every one of my childhood memories has him in it. My brother and I always got our chores done quickly so that we could play with Grant.
I'll always remember the dents we left on my dad's garage from practicing hockey, the window we broke at your grandparent's house when we learned we didn't have quite a good enough arm to throw a baseball over the house, setting up the most awesome club house ever, and "solving crimes" in our neighborhood. Thank you for making growing up so fun.

Scott, Marcia, Aunt Lori, Grandma Mae, and the rest of the family- My prayers are with you and I hope you can find rest in knowing how many lives Grant touched even in his short time here.

Dear Grant,
You were my son Masons roomate in college and we saw eachother thru a really difficult time. Not one day did we miss eachothers calls, and we talked for hours.I'm SO proud of you and I will forever be thankful to you for what you and your father brought to Masons life. I won't ever forget the time we spent together and the privelage of meeting and having dinner with you and Mason and meeting your mother.I wish I could reach out to her, but I can't find her. My heart is heavy and my eyes full of tears, but I know that The Lord called you home for good reason and that you are happy and okay. I will see you again someday. I love you. You were a hero in way more ways than one. Love Always, Stacy Barcello
