Hello Sam, Jack & Poppy
I was looking back on an email I'd received from Graham and visited the website and see he passed in July.
I am saddened at your loss and give you our sincere condolences, you will miss him greatly.
He certainly brought an awareness and inspiration to many and has made a difference which must be a comfort to you all.
Kindest regards Carol & John Mayon. Qld

Dear Sam, Jack and Poppy,
Although I never met Graham, I just wanted you to know what an inspiration you've all been to me as you've travelled this sometimes tortuous path together. Graham's tenacity and will to go on living has amazed me at times, considering the unspoken pain he must often have suffered. I thank Graham - and you guys - for making me a better person for having, however briefly, known you. Sleep peacefully Graham.

Dear Sam, Jack and Poppy,
We did not know Graham, but are part of the St Leonard's commmunity and you have been very much in our thoughts throughout his illness. We are so sorry that Graham has passed, and our hearts go out to you at this terrible time. The love and beautiful memories that you have all shared will always be part of you, and I hope they will bring some comfort to you.

Dear Sam, I wish I had the opportunity to meet Graham instead of getting to know him through his struggles and pictures. Yet, the words and pictures you all chose lets me know that heaven has another member. Hopefully, I will be fortunate enough to meet him on the other side. Life is just too short and I cringe to think of leaving behind so much love and memories unmade. Please know that I know that we will become lifelong friends as we try to make sure that people like your husband and my daughter have an opportunity to live a long and cancer-free life because of the things that both of them endured for the betterment of mankind.

Be blessed forever and a day,
Tedd Collins

Dear Sam, Jack and Poppy. Following your journey with Graham has been amazing and my heartfelt thoughts and prayers go to you at this very sad time. You have touched many lives through sharing Graham's long battle and, I am sure, given hope to other people who thought all hope had been lost. God bless you Sam, and your beautiful children, Jack and Poppy as you continue life's journey with wonderful memories of a loving husband, father and friend. Sweet dreams Graham. xxxx

Dear Sam Jack and Poppy

I did not know you or your family but have followed your journey closely after reading your story in the local paper.
I lost my brother in law several years ago when diagnosed with AML. He lost his battle 6 weeks after diagnosis and fought to his last breath.
To think Graham fought for so long and kept bouncing back to me was a miracle knowing just how bad the treatment was yet he was still up for the next lot, what a brave and lovely man.
As for you Sam I spoke to you regarding a garage sale to raise money for the appeal and here I found a young woman with such strength compassion and sincerity who was prepared to fight for her man and children whatever it took.

Good on you and as they say "If Love could have saved him he never would have died."
God Bless you and your lovely children.

Dear Sam,Jack and Poppy

I wanted you to know that Graham was a true friend and a pleasure to work with. He will be sadly missed by my family and I. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and natural charm that made him so well liked and centre of attention whenever we were in his presence. Graham remains forever in our hearts.
