It appears the word has traveled fast about the unexpected passing of my brother Graeme early this morning. We do not know much about the cause of death at this point, and any thing would be purely speculating at this point. All we know is that he is gone, he is at peace, and he will be missed. We have been truly moved by all of the kind words, fond memories, and moving tribute video. On behalf of our family, thank you very much for helping us through this difficult time by reinforcing positive memories.
While I don't know many of you well, I know Graeme treated the Vent like his second family. You all shared in his unwavering passion for the University of Georgia. He will continue to root on the Dawgs with the rest of the Ghosts of Georgia's Pasts in heaven. Of course, everyone is invited to join us in celebrating his life on Thursday evening at Marietta Funeral Home. We understand that this will be possible for very few of you, so I'd like to encourage you to sign his online guestbook at the link below.
