Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your dear love one. “And no resident will say: I am sick…” Isa 33. In this time of a loss of someone special in our lives be comforted to know God cares and will help us endure through his love with comfort and peace. We miss this talented person whom many no doubt respected and admired.

I found the book Goodbye in a library in Richmond,TX about 20 years ago.I'm so glad I did. It gave me the freedom to to do the same kind of things that Mr. Graves did without worrying about that nasty question: What the hell's the matter with you ? I wish I could have met him. God Bless you and your family.

To the Graves family,
I just read his book, Goodbye to a River. It was superb! I so regret I never knew him, but I can hear his voice in the telling of his tale and I am thankful that he wrote it!

As I have for over 40 years, I think of John and silently thank him for "Goodbye to a River" each time I cross the Brazos on my journeys. I will forever be in his debt for the many literary gifts he has given all of us. I think of his family member with whom I worked at the Mary Couts Burnett Library, and how much she loved him. John was a fitting member of the "greatest generation." Thank God for men like him!

Sending love and condolences to the family of our longtime hero, constant source of inspiration and (lucky us!) occasional contributor to our Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine. We bumped a feature to do a tribute to Mr. Graves in October. The feature we bumped? A young man reads Goodbye to a River, and then takes his own journey on a 130-mile hike. We'll keep the candle burning for you, our beloved friend and writer.
