  34. My name is Nicky and I am the older sister to Robbie Crist who is one of Graham’s friends. I had the pleasure of meeting Graham a few years ago when he came to Mexico for my brother Dallas’ wedding, and recently again at my mom’s funeral in February. He gave me the hugest hug at her service and I will always remember his warmth and sincerity to me. I now send that big hug and warmth back to your family through this difficult time and I send my deepest condolences.

    No words can express my sincere condolences for Graham’s family and friends. I went to high school with Graham and our paths crossed again a few years ago, starting with a houseboat trip with Geoff, whom was so kind and easy to get to know just like Graham. You could tell they came from a good family. Graham was the kind of guy whom always said hi, even if it was just a wave from across the room, which I consider myself lucky to have recently received this wave at goodlife fitness a month ago. May he always be remembered for these little gestures that mean so much to people.
    My prayers and thoughts to his family.

    We haven’t spoken or seen each other for a number of years but you are all deeply nestled in our hearts always. All of us share your saddness and feel as if we have lost a special person in our family. Graham was certainly a beautiful young man and we often shared in his and your comings and goings over the years; through photos and stories from your mom. I know his fun and lively spirit will always shine in our hearts and our memories. We love you all very much and wish you strength at this difficult time.

    Love Always;
    Judy, David, Gareth, Auntie Anne, Uncle Gearld, Randy and Kathy.
