I went to school with Grant from Bonneville Elementary, Clayton Jr. High to East High.  He was always very studious but very quiet.  He didn't talk much to people around him but he always got the right answers in Math and Science.  I will recall him as one who is an old soul and an observer of those around him.

I knew Grant from about 1st grad on. He grew up as one of 13 scouts in our year that were in our troop. Even though he was quiet, Grant was always willing to be part of everything and he was always there. A good soul.

I figured out how to include the photos from the obituary.  There at the newspaper Web site where I found the obituary, I click on the button as if I want to print the obituary.  This creates a preview page.  But I don't print.  Instead, I select the material on the preview page and copy it.  Then, back at the East70 site I create a comment on the appropriate page and "paste" what I copied.  Now that I have figured how to do this I re-submitted Grant Olsen's obituary complete with photo.
