We were classmates at SFA in Bryan, Texas. We had talked at one of our class reunions. Really enjoyed the time I spent with him then and was hoping to see him again and talk some more. May God bless you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss and am disappointed I won’t be able to be there to pay my respects in person. My prayers go out to you and your mom at this time.

Dearest Maggie and Alice and family,
You do know my heart goes out to you all. Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease, and you know I am so well aware of that. It has been my honor and joy to have met all of you, even under such dreadful circumstances.
Maggie, the road will be hard. Please always know I am hear for you. Whatever you need, whenever….. day or night. An ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, I am here for you.
Blessings to you, Maggie, and you, Alice. My heartfelt prayers are with you both as they are with your wonderful Graham.

My condolences to you and your family, Maggie. Thank you for taking the time to keep me and many of Graham’s old friends and acquaintances posted during these difficult and very trying times for you. As mentioned earlier, Graham’s photo seemed to convey the kindness, charm, and grace that he so often reflected to others in his life. My hope is that with the passage of time your sorrow will fade into fond memories. God bless you and your family. Always……………………………………………David.
