Elbert Graham was one of the friends I made in grade school who presented himself as strong and gentle. Even as a youngster he new his strengths, but made it his mission to only use that strength in good fun and honorable ways. I too worked for the City of Tallahassee for several years and then is when I re-encountered Elbert fairly frequently. We lost a really good man and example of who we should strive to be when we lost Elbert.
I do wish the closeness I felt with Elbert in grade school had been in the cards for us more frequently, but our lives and careers took us in different places.
Though I know none of Elbert's family I hope a bit of reflection into his youngest years gives you some peace that Elbert was broadly appreciated by many more people than you ever knew.

Rest in Peace my Friend, you are missed.

Pops was a wonderful person! He and my husband worked for a short moment at the lottery building. We were building a relationship on the Lupus foundation he and his wife did for their sweet child. We had no idea that heaven gained such an awesome, but kind hearted person. We plan on reaching out to his lovely wife at a later date. May God bless each of you is our prayer.

My prayers and condolences to our family. I will truly miss my cousin who always had me laughing, I miss our breakfast we use to share when we wanted to act silly, you just didn't know that I really appreciated your comfort and laughter. You will be forever in my heart. If I had known when I saw your truck heading to the Dollar tree on Tennessee at, would be the last time of seeing you driving, I would have followed you and gotten another laugh. I am so sorry that I didn't. I didn't get to tell you that I love you like we always did. I miss you, but I know you are in a better place now, and I can't override the will of God over your life to being you back. But I do have memories in my heart, and I can reminisce and cry softly over our times together. Rest on my handsome cousin, I love you.

Mr. Graham was truly a strong man of God. Every morning he would go in one of the empty classrooms and pray before he went out on his van route. His belief in God was strong and his relationship with the Lord was secure. He was a very nice person. A friend to some, a brother to some, a father figure to some, a grandfather to some and a listening ear to others. A warrior now resting with the Lord. Hes got his wings now. May God grant the family peace during this time of separation.
