Sally, Marcy, and Jim,
Really sad to read about Grady's passing. He will always remain one of our favorite people.
Brenda and I occasionally conjure up thoughts of our weekends spent at Fairfield Bay
and, without fail, a smile will cross our faces.
We are keeping you and yours in our thoughts and prayers. Be strong.
