    I looked to Grady for direction during my time as commissioner and learned quickly I could trust his word. A true friend. May God welcome Grady home and give peace and comfort to his family and friends.

    Grady was a good friend. He and I had many conversations about dozers and trucks. He will be missed by all of us. I also served with Grady on the County Commission but we were friends many years before.

    Mr. Grady was one of the finest gentlemen we were fortunate enough to meet when we moved to Lincoln County.
    He and Miss Lorene were wonderful friends and would do anything in the world to help a fellow human being.
    It was easy to see from the start that they are Christians that devoted themselves by their kindness to others.
    Grady will be missed by his friends and loved-ones, and by the people
    he served under as an outstanding government official.
    May he always be remembered as we remember him in our hearts.
    You are in the promised land, Mr. Grady,
    and you are welcomed by those who have gone before you, and Christ our Lord.
    Sincerely, in Christ,
    Jeff and Fayna Sargent
