One Special Boy

Happy Pentecost, Friends! 

First, a huge thanks to all of you that have been praying for Grant and his family.  Earlier this week Grant was playing in a field with some other kids when a horse was spooked and kicked Grant in the throat.  He was without air for some time and although they were able to revive a heartbeat, he remained in critical condition with brain activity unknown. 

On Friday night Grant went to be with the Lord, passing peacefully and without pain.  We are overwhelmed by the loss of this precious child, and for the pain and loss our dear friends are experiencing.  Yet, we are also inspired by their faith, hope and joy in the midst of such tragedy.  We chose pretty amazing Godparents for our own two boys. 

I was also this special family's nanny when Grant was a baby and am grateful to be able to attend the funeral Mass/services this week while James mans the fort here with the kids.

We truly appreciate you keeping this family in your prayers as they mourn, grieve, and celebrate their son's life.
