    Running on Streets of Gold

  • Running on Streets of Gold

    It’s with the heaviest of hearts we could ever have that we want to share with you that our precious little Grant Fieldon Brown left our arms, grabbed the hand of Jesus and walked right into Heaven Tuesday night about 10:45 pm. He was attending a supervised day camp on Monday where swimming was part of the day and the unthinkable happened.

     

    Carolynne and I are overwhelmed with disbelief and sadness. The outpouring of prayers from dear friends and families, colleagues, neighbors, ICU staff, friends of friends, and perfect strangers has been immeasurable and has touched us to our core. We are sincerely grateful for each of you and know that our Lord heard every word you offered up to Him. Please help us keep our grip on the cross, even when life is completely shattered.

     

    To God alone be the glory for the beauty, joy, and fun Grant’s life brought to us and so many of you. We’ll provide more information about services in Boston as soon as we can. We covet your continued prayers.

  • Grant Brown Scholarship Fund

    Grant Fieldon Brown graduated from Kindergarten in June 2013 and was looking forward to beginning first grade. He was a well-loved member of the New Covenant School community. Following his tragic death in July, 2013 his family established the Grant Brown Scholarship Fund to honor his memory and legacy. Proceeds from this Fund will help provide an education to NCS students who share Grant’s faith, inquisitiveness, and love of learning.
