    My Darling Father In Law – There are so many wonderful memories of you. Most importantly you had such a wonderful influence on everyone you touched. Your blessed everyone with great memories, great parties (always themed), great one on ones with the two of us. One truly special man. What an over achiever!

    Graham you had such an action packed life and fun and laughter was always on the menu.

    Thank you for being the most amazing Number Two Dad! You always had more wisdom and sensible advice than my Number One Dad, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the balance.

    With my love

    dear Uncle Graham.
    What a fine and inspirational man you have been.
    My memories go back more than 60 years of a man who inspired me through being the person he was.
    I was so enriched by his love and artful craft of signwriting–including the wonderful shimmering silver disks that he introduced into his sign-writing at the time -icons of the era- and which became such a fad for so long (especially for Tip Top ice cream). Seeing what he did, inspired me to want to be a signwriter. But that was not to happen for I was not renown be competent in climbing ladders.
    Uncle Graham, the artist as the son of an artist, and his children with the spirit of artists.
    What more could one ask. Thank you Uncle Graham for being you, and for your inspiration.
    fondest memories
    Colin–your sister Marjorie’s son.

    My Papa, an absolute treasure of a man who I will forever be in admiration of 🤍
    From hearing my Dad talk about his Hero, to spending Sunday mornings snuggled up in bed with you and Nana, I am so grateful to have had such a loving, beautiful grandparent in my life.
    Watching you make Nana breakfast each morning, while I sat on the stool in the kitchen and no doubt talked your ear off, you were always patient and answered every question I had, no matter what it was 🥹
    As I grew up and distance separated us, I still had absolutely no doubt that you loved us all the same, every year I looked forward to the beautiful handwritten cards with your x’s and o’s and I’ve kept every single one 🥰
    I will love you forever, knowing that when the sun shines down on me, it will always be you ❤️

      Papa, thank you for being you. I’m so grateful that I get to call you my Grandfather. Your painting hangs with great pride in my home and I love getting to tell everyone who admires it that it was a gift from you. Your creativity lives on in all your children and of course us grandkids and our babies too. Thank you for your amazing smile and the memories. We love you xx

    You weren’t just my art teacher you were someone I greatly admired. you taught me how to never bypass the magical minuscule details that turned my drawings/paintings into treasures.
    I used this method both in life and in art n it made me who I am today . Thankyou
    You taught me how to love and use that gift just like real magic and to this day I never pick up a pencil or brush without hearing you in my ear “Amy ! How did you get charcoal in your nose “

    I’ll never forget you and all you did for me growing up
    Forever grateful
    Love Amy Bell
