Mike--There are simply no words that express what is on my heart for you and your family right now. I didn't know your son, but I did know you at the same age, and I imagine Grayson must have been the kind, intelligent, principled young man you were. Sending love and prayers to you and your family, Mike. I am so very sorry for your loss.

My heart is broken for all of you! It is not the natural order of things for parents to have to bury their child no matter the age. I just found out that Grayson and my two sons have been working together these last 5 years. The Paddle out caught my attention. I am in shock over your great loss. I have been saying prayers for you as often as I can. Sending Love and Hugs and prayers.

It is September 10th. Twice in my life someone has asked me the question, "Have you heard?", and both times answering, "Heard what?" it was apparent I was on the brink of news. i remember hearing that as a student at UVa for fellow high school classmate Jeffrey Goodove, and while living in Spain in 2001, waiting outside my son's preschool. My heart goes out to this loving family. I was a young kid myself at Jeffrey's service, but the encompassing love of your family struck me even then. I don't know Grayson, but can see how he was such a bright light in this beautiful extended family. Sending energy to my former student, Gabi, and your entire family at this terribly tough time. With love.

Nicole Prater posted on 9/10/20

I had the great privilege of teaching Grayson in fifth grade at JBD and the one thing I think of when I remember him is that BIG, infectious smile he always had every morning when he entered the room. Everyone knew that Grayson was present and everyone LOVED him. I was always struck by the love that Grayson shared with his sweet sisters and how close your family was with one another. I am praying for you all during this difficult time.

Chelsea posted on 9/8/20

I am so thankful to know and love the entire Goodove family, but this past year I chose to spend Thanksgiving down here in VA beach instead of back home and I am so glad that we did that. Grayson, Gab, Sky, Alex and I all ate at the “kids” table, and we talked about what the kids wanted to do after college.. Grayson said.. I think it’d be cool to work at Google, I hear they give you free food... and like really good food. We talked about that, school, and just laughed. It will go down as one of my favorite thanksgiving’s because the love I felt in that room carried with me well after I left. ❤️


Robin & Jared Tuxill.. Jackson, Colby, Dylan & Alli Kassir posted on 9/8/20

We are so sorry for the loss of Grayson. May you find some peace and comfort knowing how much he was loved. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.


Adam Berven posted on 9/8/20

I will never forget meeting Grayson for the first time when we were around 16 years old. Little did I know that we would both end up attending Colorado University together a few years after meeting. I wish we had gotten more time together in Boulder, but I will always cherish the memories I made with him whether it be going to movies, grabbing something to eat, playing video games or going up to the mountains to ski and snowboard. Grayson was always so much fun to be around and I will miss him dearly. Much love to your family.


Amber Hester posted on 9/8/20

As one of Grayson’s former teachers, I can’t begin to share what a gift he was to John B. Dey staff, students & community. As his elementary art teacher, I had the pleasure of enjoying him in my classroom for 5 years. His Infectious personality made him quite popular & a student you don’t forget. All the Goodove children are exceptional & my heart & prayers go out to you all. Love, Mrs.Hester


Sophia Zambas Wastler posted on 9/7/20

Although I never met Grayson I know and love his family. His grandmother, father and uncle Scott are all very dear to my heart as I grew up with them. Goodove family, you are being lifted up in prayer. You don’t grieve alone. Sending you tremendous love and support from a far. Sophia



Amanda Berven posted on 9/7/20

I remember playing some silly game over winter break a few years ago... You had to stick plastic in your mouth which made it near impossible to speak while others had to figure out what you were saying. Grayson was the only one time and time again that could figure out what everyone else was saying. He will be missed terribly. Sending love and support to your family.


The Berven’s posted on 9/7/20

Grayson will be missed by many and we are sending all of our love and support to your family.
