For Graham's positive spirit

In December of 2012 Graham Simmons was diagnosed with Gliobastoma , a most aggressive form of brain cancer. Graham has fought long and hard these past months with Family and friends along his side giving support and care. 
Graham's wonderful attitude , personal strength, indominable spirit and that special 'graham sense of humor' has inspired us all durring this journey in his life. 
But as of this June , Graham and Family have decided, together, that he will no longer
continue chemo therapy treatment and move on to family and hospice care only at home.
Graham's wife Ayako and son Kei continue their personal lives at work and school and lovingly care for their man Graham in all other respects and are truly amazing and strong in joining Graham in his grand fight against this desease. 
Graham is doing well and gives his most sincere and appreciative thanks to one and all for all the support and love sent his way.


        "We begin to understand how insignficant things are in the greater scheme of things when we are confronted with hardship and loss...What is permanent and lasts to the end of our days is the time and love we have shared with each other. At best these items will remind me of my life spent with Graham, sharing adventures and interests, his exuberant high spirit that lifted him and everyone around him, his frequent laughter that will, and does, remind us all that life was, and is, meant to be lived with joy... Please, again, give Graham a kiss on the cheek and tell him it's from me. If it makes him smile, which will make you smile, know that I am smiling with you."
