I was saddened to hear of Grady's passing. Grady was one of the first neighbors my wife Barbara & I met when we bought a house at Smoky Mountain County Club. He made us feel welcome and I will never forget that. God bless him.

Ron & Shannon,

My heart is broken for you. It is unimaginable what you have gone through during the past severable weeks. Both Syb and Grady were great friends to us over the years. You have my deepest sympathy.
