I didn't know Graham long, but his charm, humor and warmth immediately grabbed your attention. I will miss his smile and the delicious breads I was lucky to sample. Caroline & Family, you all remain in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you the peace, comfort and strength you need during this awful time.

Caroline and family - I am thinking of you as I am sure this is the hardest part of being an adult.  Our thoughts are with you as you regain your balance.  I will miss your dad as being the quiet guy in the corner and probably your biggest fan. Tammy and John

Graham was a very special and dear friend. You could be having a sad or lonely moment and with the blink of an eye you were laughing, until you had tears in your eyes. He was kind generous thoughtful, patient, understanding,witty, charming,super talented. I will miss our chats very very much. He would go out of his way if need be. RIP GRAHAM.

I met Graham when I was very little. He was husband to my mother's closest friend, Mary Kate and father to Caroline, close friend to my sister and me growing up. We grew up around Graham and had the pleasure of being a part of so many great memories with him. I will always remember him fondly, and my husband Martin and I will always remember him when we drink our 8 o'clock coffee ;) Deepest sympathies to Caroline and the rest of his family...
