My other brother from a different mother. There are no words to describe the void in my life without Graham. Beginning at Iron Springs, through high school, summer counselors at Orme Ranch (remember doing donuts on the airstrip or the dash to the junction?), then the years in Tucson. What a time we had…parties at the house he shared with Teddy Marshall and of course the sweet purple adobe at Helen & Fremont, not to mention the milkshakes at Toltec when we would collide on our way back down to Tucson. Then “adult” life, bouncing back and forth between Cali and Zonie. Iron Springs/Prescott being our “womb”. Our dogs, the concerts and the shared memories along with his including my dad in the Scottish Highlander games, never wanting a chance to miss a “wee dram”. A gifted, loving man. My heart is broken except for the fact that he is safe in the arms of his Saviour and is again able to speak. I believe that he is with his parents, Teddy (who most likely met him with Levi Wienie and Bacchus in tow), Chuck Ragsdale and all of his friends who were waiting to greet him. Off on the next grand adventure. Light Perpetual WILL shine upon him. I love you sweet Graham, always have and always will. Until we meet again.
