Sending heartfelt condolences to Dara and the entire Wilson family. Grady and I began our careers together back in 1993. As we both took our different paths at the company, I always enjoyed running in to him and catching up. He was such a great person with an infectious smile and a heart of gold. He was much too young. Prayers as the family begins the healing process, and learning their new normals.

This news came as a shock to me. I grew up with Grady. I knew him since kindergarten. Spent two years as his college roommate. He was a great friend to me through out my youth. I have thought about him often, and wanted to get back in touch with him. Now I wish I would have. Even though we lost touch I will miss him dearly.
