Linda, I personally never knew Grant but heard many many great things and stories about him from his Aunt Glo. My brother-in-law passed away in Sept 1996 with this disease. I appreciate all the things that Grant stood for and I respect him for that as well. I pray for you and your family daily. " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Hello Linda: Just checked in to see Grant's memorial site. Although I choked up as I saw all your wonderful pictures, it was a powerful reminder of the work we have left to do in the fight against HIV/AIDS and the ignorance that still surrounds it. Many love & blessings, Mitzi

Hi Linda, Just wanted to stop by and check out Grant's memorial site. It is lovely, although it tugged at my heartstring all Grant had to go through, especially at such a young age. He was a fighter, though, and I know you all are so proud of him, as he is of you all looking down. There is no discrimination where he is now :) Take care.

Love & Peace, VeeJay

Itís lonely here without you, We miss you more each day, For life is not the same to us, Since you were called away. To your resting place we visit, Place flowers there with care, But no one knows our heartache, When we turn and leave you there.

I don't really know where to start. I have lived in so many different places... I hated moving to new towns and starting new relationships as I child. What I know now is this... had I never moved to Licking, MO I never would have met my friend Grant. I wouldn't be the same without the experiences that I shared with him. My stay wasn't very long in Licking, but we stayed in touch and he even came to visit me whenever I did finally find aplace that I could call home. He also talked me through some really hard timesafter my boyfriend and father of my little girl passed away. I will never forget how selfless you were Grant. I will never forget that when we were hanging out or just talking how goofy we could be together and how much fun we had. I will never forget you and Melissa taking turns giving me a ride to school, so that I wouldn't have to ride the bus..ha ha. My weekend that turned into week when I came to visit. Stage diving at the Third Eye Blind concert in Rolla. I thought you were going to break my hand because I kept playing that Wyclef song over and over. Your love for a good ballgame on a hot day at the old Busch stadium. GOOD TIMES!!!! Thanks for sharing yourself with me. I love you , always have always will. Tell Christopher Dean that I love him too! I will see you again and thanks for sending me peace. TO your family and your friends: I know how much he loves you. Remember the good times (I know you have many).. you are ALL in my thoughts and prayers. Love always, Tab

Linda, Tears are flowing as I look at Grants pictures and read about his wonderful but painful life. I marvel at his bravery and caring for others. I believe Grant and Mindy brought us together to lean on each other through this long road called grief. Each day we are one day closer to being with our loved one again. My heart aches for your grief for your precious son. Blessings and Love, Brenda Mindy's Mom

What a nice tribute! Wish I could have known Grant better as a teenager and adult. He must of been a very courageous and giving young man. Your parents must be so proud! I sure am to have known you as a child.

Wow Aunt Linda, this site is amazing! Grant touched the hearts of many. I think of Grant when he was little and laugh out loud at Aunt Linda chasing him around the house, Grandpa Fisher diving underneath Grandma's kitchen table after him for spitting on someone,screaming profanity at my mom for getting a splinter out of his finger.....he was 3! Grant was full of life and most importantly full of love. If you were loved by Grant, you knew it and that is something that will be felt until we die.

Grant, I wish you could pull my hair one more time like when you were little. I wish we could go back in time and play at Grandma Fisher's house when we would pull out all the toys and stare at the 'forbidden" teddy bear she had and dare each other to touch it (which neither of us were that brave)! I know you can't so I will take these memories and put them in my heart forever. Ill pull them out one by one and remember all the times we had. I miss you, I love you. ~Niki

I am so glad that I found this page. I saw Grant on the Geraldo show when he was 15. I was 12 years old at that time. His story truly touched me, and I have thought about him several times over the years. During my senior year of high school, I wrote a paper for an english class about the plight of HIV/AIDS. I mentioned Grant in that paper. It is interesting how someone whom you have never met seems to cross your mind so often. Before that day in 1994, I had never seen a child who had HIV/AIDS. Grant changed any stereotypes that I might have had about people who are living with AIDS. He was a remarkable young man. I only wish that I could have known him. On a side note, there was also another young man on that show with Grant. His name was Vinnie, and he was from Long Island, NY. I wonder if you know how he is doing now. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family. Although the time down here never came, I look forward to meeting Grant one day in heaven.

God Bless,

Grant:I am so thankful to have known and loved you... In my dreams your still the bad boy with a shaved head and rosy red lips. I know you and Ryan are having too much fun up there and taking care of each other.

Linda: This a beautiful site in honor of Grant but you know one day he will give you hell for all these country songs...HAHA

I only met Grant a couple of times. I met him through a mutual friend. But when I saw on TV that he had passed. I started to cry because he was a great guy and even though he had AIDS he still lived everyday like he wasn't sick. I admire that he talked to other people about it and wanted to make a difference in people's lives. I am truly sorry for your loss. Grant was a great guy and you are lucky to have him as a son. Take care.

05-06-2006 2:44 PM -- By: Hether Rasmussen,  From: Licking Mo.  

Hey Guys. This is an Amazing sight you have made. I am so sorry about your loss. I wish I could have made it to the funeral, but I was in Indiana. I sure do miss all of you, I may come down and visit you guys if thats all right. This sight is very touching.

Love Heather

Linda and family, I was so touched by Grant's tribute. What a wonderful life he had and such a special person. I am so proud that he is a part of my family and that his blood is the same that runs through my viens. Please know that you are a very special person too for doing this tribute and for keeping the memories of Grant alive for all of us. Love you so much....Your cousin, Donna

05-06-2006 9:00 AM -- By: Bonnie "Ritchey" Cebulak,  From: Perryville, Mo  

Linda & family,

What a tribute to your son. I did not know he passed away. I know through the years you did alot to educate people about hemoplia and the use of tanted blood. I believe many families have been spared the pain and tears of watching a loved one slip away all because Grant was a wonderful advocate. God bless all of you as you mourn this great loss, but be encouraged, someday there will be a family reunion. Much love and prayers, your counsin, Bonnie

05-05-2006 11:30 PM -- By: Joyce Ritchey,  From: St. Clair, Missouri  

Linda, you did a wonderful job with this memorial website for Grant...The pictures of his last days made me feel sad...But I know he is still with you in spirit...I didn't get to know him, but I know he was a wonderful young man, and had a lot of love for everyone...God bless you and your family...

Love from your cousin Joyce

Grant, my friend, will be in my heart forever. He taught me so much about life and living life irregardless of the situation. I will remember him and the family as long as I live.
