Great memories of laughing at some stories Graham and Alison told in church, hearing his clear voice singing descants during worship, praying together. And visiting their amazing garden at Duncraig, pulling weeds always 😊
Graham was a wise and wonderful friend. We will miss him.
Rest in peace, Graham. It was a privilege to know you.
From 1969 to 1973 I taught with Graham at City Beach Senior High School, where he was the Science Master. For Christian teachers like us, this was a very challenging time of transition. We were allowed to organize occasional seminars, to which ministers of religion would be invited to lead groups or give other input. I have very fond memories of those occasions. It was always a pleasure to work with Graham in preparing the materials and conducting the seminars. We were able to see some interesting situations, in which several of the local nuns had some very valuable input. (Vatican 2 Council had concluded only in 1965, giving them a new freedom to work with other branches of the Christian church.)
Dear Alison and family. Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of Graham. It was a privilege to know him, his strength and his spirit was an inspiration. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
Warmest regards to the family
Very sad news, love to you all.
