Kim and Family,

My wife and I am sorry to hear of the loss of your husband. Grady helped me with my yard work for over seventeen years. He was a fine man
and always went out of his way for us. It's always sad to lose someone that young.

I counted it a privileged to know Grady. I worked with Grady for a few years in DIET at T'Ville. We sure shared some laughs. Saddened to learn of his passing. Fine Christian man.

I was so saddened hearing the news of Al's passing! I have many fond memories of him from our youth dating back to 1st grade, then thru the Boy Scouts with Mr Bill Stroble, whom we both adored, and thru church & school as well! He will definitely be missed by all who knew him! May Al & the Lord continue to watch over y'all!

I pray His loving arms will bring you, your children and all the family, the peace and comfort that only God Himself can give. .... " The peace that passes all understanding! " My love always, to all of you!

I am so sorry to hear of Grady’s death. I remember him as such a quiet guy in high school. My best memory is of his immense love for you. Whenever I saw you together in school and the years that passed it was evident in his eyes how much he loved and adored you. God blessed you with many years together and Grady leaves a beautiful legacy in you, the children and grands. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
