I'd always stop by when driving thru town, and we'd get breakfast at Liberty Restaurant. Didn't matter what time of the day it was. If I needed to talk, vent or even tell jokes, you were there to help me. You've been a stand-up guy, a man's man. I always looked up to you. It breaks my heart to have to deal with this world without you. But, I will see you again. Until that time, RIP. I LOVE YOU, BIG BROTHER!!

So many memories to name, from morning coffee dates, to rides on the "batcycle" no matter the time of day. One time while I was pregnant with my youngest child, I mentioned I was craving Clausen Pickles and he showed up the next day with them, I hadn't even asked. Uncle Graig was there for me at times I was not even there for myself. I appreciate him for all the wisdom and insight he shared with me, and all the things he has done for me. I was blessed to have such an awesome person in my life, and someone who no matter what could always love me for me. I will miss you so much, and I love you so much. Thank you for helping mold the person I am today. Thank you for being so beautifully, unapologetically you and touching the lives of everyone you knew. Rest in peace always and I'll see you again one day.

I worked with Graig for the last 6months+ . He was such a joy to work with and was always ready to help you. It's not been the same without his smiling face at work. I always looked forward to seeing him. RIP my friend!
