I had been hoping for so long that Grady would finally find some true and lasting peace and happiness in his life. He deserved it as much as anyone, but especially after the hellish ordeal that he went through with Destiny’s mom.

Grady would know how to utterly cherish and honestly love Autumn more than anyone, and she would need and crave his never ending well of love and devotion. Their lives have molded and shaped them into the wonderful people that they have become and what better way to celebrate that then to find the one the completes you?
