    I have been playing hockey with Graham for years now. Every time he stepped on the ice it was an event! He had extreme passion which resulted in many goals and many penalty minutes. I can hear him now loudly laughing and commentating on the game we had just played over beers in the parking lot. He will be missed very much.

    Mr. and Mrs. Dart. My heart goes out to you and your family at this time as well as my prayers for Gods love to rain down on you in this difficult time.
    I found out by coincidence since I no longer have social media. I was looking through the obits this friday and his name was on the top.
    I went to Prairie with Graham. I spent time with him, I got to know him, watched him play volleyball… he was my friend. I have many photos of him during his time there and I can tell you that he did find happiness there. He made many friends. He was involved in sports. He loved life! I know times change and circumstances change people, but know that as parents you did what you could for him. -Dart, I hope you found some peace! <3

    Grief never ends…But it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith….it is the price of love.

    Graham, meeting your bright spirit was a huge smile to my face and the sincerity and kindness and laughs shared will always stay with me in my heart. You will be missed, the universe always has a way of keeping us loving, sometimes from a distance, but that gap can always be narrowed..with just a memory shared in laughter and warmth…may the angels protect you and walk beside you… now ….and forever.

    Graham, you have been my best friend for so many years. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you and dearly miss you. You have been such a huge part of my life and you knew me better than anyone in this world. You have such an amazing family that I know loves and cares for you deeply just as I do. You will always be missed and it is so hard to believe you’re gone. Graham I know you are up there looking down on me, still helping me through all the tough times I continue to struggle with. I have never laughed the way I have with you. The memories of you and I, will always be the most memorable moments of my life and will never be forgotten. I want you to know how much I needed you just as much as i know you needed me. I now realize this more than ever. I love you buddy. It just won’t be the same without you. Be well my friend. We will meet again some day.

    Forever and always. your loving friend,

    Dean Cameron Malinowski
