Aunt Delores, Hank, Danny and Boys, The world became a little darker place Saturday night, but the heavens got a whole lot brighter. He loved you all so very much and was proud of each and everyone of you. Life will never be the same again, but each day that goes by gets a wee little bit easier and you learn to go on. Remember Uncle Graham’s sense of humor and don’t forget to laugh. It is the best medicine! He was a wonderful man. I miss him with all of my heart already. He was always so generous and willing to help other people. His fight is over now and he is at peace and feels no pain. Just remember, God will give you the strength and the comfort you need to get through this. And while we are sitting here feeling blue, I bet him and dad are already fishing! You are all in my thoughts and prayers and I love all of you, wives included, and I am here if there is anything you need. HAPPY FISHING HENRY!!!
