So sad to hear this news! Another good person taken too soon! Graham was a great guy who was always willing to help others. I never heard anything but good things about him from other colleagues, which speaks volumes about the type of person he was. Our thoughts are with the Whittaker family at this very difficult time. Rest in peace Graham, God Bless. Lots of Love from Nick & Oliver at Glyn Hopkin Ipswich Parts.

Mr Nicholas Abbott
