Dear Taylor family, Gray and I spent a lot of time together in Memphis. We attended Woodland grade school and CBHS together. My fondest memories are of the many camping trips we had on his family's land near Oxford, MS. Fishing, shooting, sleeping under the stars, we got to be teenage boys raised in the South those weekends. He was always a good friend. It has been so long since we last spoke and I cannot express how much I miss his friendship today. My prayers are with your family

Words cannot express my sorrow for losing such an amazing person. I have always respected Gray's drive to pursue the things he loved. He knew what made him happy, and he made those things the center of his life. He was always comfortable in his own skin and never failed to demonstrate superior character and integrity, a knack for leadership, a passion for the environment, a love for his family, all wrapped up in his style of laid-back charm. I will always admire Gray, and know I will get to laugh with him again.

Perge!

I pray for strength to Gray's family at this difficult time. He was a bright and insightful person. Gray worked for me just after he graduated from Clemson as an environmental and siva culture specialist. You could see the longing in his thoughts for going to law school. It was a forgone conclusion that he would go. He and I discussed it often. In the passing years I have had need to use his services. He was bright and responsive. Our love and prayers go out to his family and friends.
