"Graham met many wonderful people worldwide most of whom became firm friends. He valued their camaraderie and acceptance and loved them for it. He loved America, his chosen home, for its vast beauty, opportunity and freedom. Graham loved New York City, its bustle, its culture and its vitality. His spirit and the spirit of this great city will be interlinked forever.

To us Graham was our ‘lark’, he soared high and made beautiful music.

May he rest in peace."

excerpt from Chris Berkeley's address at Graham's Memorial Service

This is my friend, Graham.  Of the many people I've met on this journey, Graham was one of the most exceptional human beings I've had the honor to spend time with.  A man of great depth, he was about as charismatic and cosmopolitan as they come.  He would light up a room, simply by walking into it and could charm the devil himself into making a confession.  Look at that smile..... what more do I need to say?  He is a beautiful human being.

He will be greatly missed by a great deal of amazing people who were privileged enough to truly know Graham, including this young pup, who still had so much to learn from that wise ol' dog... Graham, your memory continues to inspire me and shall remain a positive catalyst in my life.  I thank you for that gift.
