                        projects for Gray Construction.  Lisle   to provide clarity at

                        a sustained angry moment on any         continued on page 3
        of those projects. There may have been some tense
        times, but as he told us several times, he never had
        a lasting disagreement with any Gray team member.
        He was calm and patient, with an enduring smile;
        always true to his word, and completely loyal to his
        friends. We were fortunate to have him in our lives,
        and he will be dearly missed for his friendship and his
        example of how to live. Our prayers remain with his
        family and his colleagues at Wade Architectural.
          I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start! A lot
        has changed over the past few years at Gray. We’ve
        had growth beyond expectations. And to better
        position us for this growth, we recently rolled out a
        refreshed Purpose, Vision, and Guiding Principles
        (shown to the right).
