“It’s with a heavy to let people know that my husband, Brad Thomson, has passed on,” wrote Granado. “Many of you know him from the band The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza as one helluva guitar player. This man had the kindest soul and the biggest heart of any man I have ever known. Please think of him today and hug your loved ones. I will miss you my sweet husband. Always tell the people how much you love them as we never know what the next day could bring.
