Les and family. I am so sorry to hear about Grady. I really loved working with him. Grady would bring out the new patterns to be rigged on the jacks, and Bud Baily and I would talk to him for a while every time he brought out a new pattern. He was a great man and was a lot of fun to talk with. May GOD bless you and your family. We’ll be praying for you. . . . Jeff & Marion Parks; Helena, Montana
