Sending sincere condolences to the Parsons family. My father Jim and Graham were lifelong friends. I remember many sunday afternoon drives to UIC and visits to the Parsons'. Dad always spoke very fondly of Graham, right up to shortly before his own passing in May. Many a horse story were shared between them, and I would imagine some of them were even true. On behalf of the entire Jackson family we send our deepest sympathy.

My condolences to Margaret and the entire family. I only met Graham during the week I spent next door; the hospitality, kindness, and welcoming he gave to not only myself but the whole group was second-to-none! He surely had the spirit of what Newfoundland is known for and we are all better for having met Graham and be able to sit with him for a little while. God bless. B. Goodyear, Ontario.

I have visited Upper Island Cove several times. Graham treated me like gold and always had a smile for everyone. His infectious sense of humour drew me to him right away. On one occasion we were sitting at Bill and Lisa's place with friends and the door flung open. Graham yelled out "Is Smitty here?" We sat down and talked about life and had many laughs. He was a great person and I know will be missed by family and friends. My deepest sympathy to Margaret and the family.
