    My sincere condolences to Grant's wife and entire family over their loss. I worked and actually carpooled with Grant in the late 1980's while we both were employed as correctional officers at SCI-Retreat. Grant had a great sense of humor and I always enjoyed listening to his many hunting stories while to and from work. Grant was a kind and thoughtful individual who would help anyone that needed assistance. May God Bless Grant and his family during this difficult time. Rest in Peace my friend. We will never forget you.
