Grant was a kind, bright, inexplicably intelligent soul.
He was not in a downward spiral when he passed. He had picked himself up from the depths of his rock bottom a few years ago -- he had a job he loved, a fiance he adored, a lovely apartment, a whole new life he had recently created and was so proud of. Sometimes the darkness of addiction hides in the most unexpected corners. Frozen in time at the age of 27, he will never be lonely because he took a piece of us with him when he left. Even though we can't help but to be searching forever for the "why" that will never be delivered, we will always be thankful for the last, happy years we spent with our beloved son and big brother. As our family of four adjusts to being a family of three this holiday season, we will carry on his legacy to help others struggling with the disease of addiction and work to make sure we save any precious lives we can.
I will miss you for the rest of my life. I love you brother.
