I can’t see the bottom of my grief, but I am comforted by the beautiful things I read that people say about Grant," said his wife, Marlene Galan Woods. "He was loved by so many. And in the past few days I’ve been fortunate to tell a few of his close friends how much he loved them. Grant was bigger than life. He loved with enormous passion. He loved Arizona, he loved this country, his friends and most of all his family. We will honor this uniquely gorgeous man in a way he deserves."
