Graham was a long time collaborator and friend. He was by far my favorite person (of all the amazing people at Stanford) that I got to work with. So positive, so appreciative, he made me feel valued, and whatever small part I played - made it seem important. Graham was the "King of sabbaticals" and inspired me to also take them to re-energize my life and career. Will miss you, xxxooo
Graham was my friend for over 20 years. Then he became my husband. Every minute with him was precious. He was generous, and kind and brilliant and had a sense of whimsy that I simply could not resist. He did not want to die and showed such courage throughout the progression of his disease. I know those long legs are carrying him again to all those places he loved.
My fondest memory of Graham is hearing him play at Filoli. He looked so handsome all dressed up and sounded womderful on the grand piano in the ballroom. Then he was so gracious to come hear my very amateur singing group, the Clef Hangers, and actually applaud. Will miss him so much. Love, Ruth
I feel very sad to say good-bye to Graham, a loyal and thoughtful friend, an amazing man so talented and brilliant in so many ways. I feel fortunate that he touched my life.
