Wonderful man! Great sense of humor, and from what we hear, a terrific ski instructor well into his 70’s. We could not have had better neighbors than Jim and his fabulous wife. Our sincere condolences to the whole family.

Jean and family, So sorry to hear about your loss. Although I only met Jim on a few occasions I’ll remember him as a kind sweet person who loved you and your kids dearly. Lots of love and prayers.
I will miss you Mr. Grady! Love Lynnette, your Caregiver and friend
