Lambert’s parents said they would donate their son’s organs so he can help more people after he is gone.
They are also setting up a scholarship in his name for graduating students at Lincoln Academy Alternative High School in his hometown of Stillwater, Oklahoma.
The money will be given to a student who will pursue a career in nursing.
“He said, so I want you to take my ashes and spread them from where I’m off until the end,” said Julie Lambert, mother of Grady Lambert. “So Mark and I are going on an epic road trip and spreading Grady’s ashes along the way.”
