I miss his singing. Graham sang everything. He didn't come in to a room and say hi, he danced in to a room signing it at the top of his lungs. He had funny off the wall expressions and sayings for everything. I miss his hugs. I really miss hearing "I love you mom"

Tell us about your loved one.

Graham loved music. He always was listening to or singing or playing music. He loved art and tattoos and dreamed of some day being a professional tattoo artist. He loved to joke and was always on the look out for a good prank to pull. He loved big and was loyal to those fortunate enough to call him friend.

Tell us about Graham's struggle with addiction

Graham battled with heroin for several years. After completing more treatment he thought he finally had it licked. He lasted 1 week outside of the controlled environment before he used. That last week of his life he was high on meth until he finally turned back to heroin. That final choice took his life. I read these words after the tragic overdose of Philip Seymour Hoffman, "It wasn't the last needle that killed me. It was the first."

What made Graham smile?

Being around people and those he cared for made him smile.
