94: Grant, We've said many times, "It's a good thing you're cute and make us laugh, or else.....!" Actually, you are an awesome person and we are privileged to have you as our son! Your fun-loving, goofy personality always brightens our lives and makes us smile. Your love of music and incredible talent playing the guitar is so uplifting. Your creativity is inspiring and your enthusiasm contagious. But the sweetest of all is your passion to drink deeply of Christ and flow to others. We have seen the Lord mold your tender spirit, transparent and available, growing you into a man with strong character. Remember your godly heritage and the blessings of your family. Run hard after Christ. Always choose what's right and pure. Be a light in this dark world. "Fear the Lord and serve Him in truth, for consider what great things He's done for you." (1 Samuel 12:24) Oh, and keep laughing! We are so proud of you and will cherish the unforgettable memories we've made together. We love you with all our hearts. Congratulations, and "take luck!" Love, Mom and Dad
95: Grant, Happy Graduation!! I cannot believe that you are finished with high school already! One of the biggest joys in my life has been watching you excel in your musical ability, pursue a deeper relationship with the Lord, and take leadership in the Student Ministries at church. You have been a blessing and a strong example to so many students and leaders at church and I really look up to you for that! We all know how God has gifted you with a care-free, fun-loving, crazy, exotic, ridiculous, hilarious, and joyous personality! You are able to build relationships and touch the lives of people in a way that no one else is able to do. I pray that, as you move on to college and continue your pursuit of music and God's Word, the Lord will grow you in new ways and use you to make a real difference on campus. Thanks for being such a great friend and brother. I'm really excited that you will be sticking around Lancaster for the time being, too! Keep allowing Christ to change you and mold you and use you how He pleases. Love you so much!! Your bro, Matt
99: You did it!
