Granted Wishes is a Non-Profit, 501(c)(3) committed to the reduction of loneliness, depression and suicide among the adult and elderly populations throughout America.
Loneliness and depression are both world-wide epidemics that not only effect people emotionally but physically as well. Suicide is often the end result of someone suffering from chronic depression and the late life and elderly populations of America make up the largest percentage. At Granted Wishes, we feel that no one should be emotionally punished for having out lived their family members and friends.

Who is George Renc?
Organized and founded in July of 2010, GRANTED WISHES became the idea of Brian S. Lambert after the death of a good friend, George F. Renc. Mr. Renc was a great man who quieltly died in a low income apartment in Tampa, Florida. After his death, George's body remained on the floor of his apartment, without air conditioning, until he was found more than two weeks later.
George passed away completely alone. No family or no friends to come to his aid or be by his side in his time of need or to celebrate his life. His body was removed by the County Medical Examiners Office and was "stored" until family claimed his remains. It was well known that Mr. Renc had no family meaning that after a 90-day storage period, his remains would have been disposed of with no service whatsoever. It was after learning that this was going to happen that Mr. Lambert decided to create GRANTED WISHES in honor of Mr. Renc.
