    Graeme is possibly of one of the most selfless people that walks this earth. He will do above and beyond to help people out there, whether he knows you or whether you are a stranger on the street he will sacrifice selflessly.

    He is the guy that still helps little old ladies as the shops with their bags.

    He is the guy that breaks up fights and buys everyone a drink to keep the peace.

    He always has a kind word or a shoulder to lean on when you need it.

    For once in his life, he needs everyone else’s help…and because it is Greame he’ll never ask….

    So please if you can please help this man who is always will to help others and never asks for anything in return.

    We became friends while playing against each other. I always admired the way he was batting, playing without fear and hitting some of the biggest sixes I have ever seen.

    We became friends, he always asks me if I want to help their team out if they are players short.

    Graeme is one of those people who always helps someone out, without asking anything in return.

    He is really a gentle giant, always treat someone else with respect (even if they do not deserve it).
    a real gentleman.

    I hope everything works out for him, he is a true friend and only deserves the best!!

    Keeping you in our prayers G-man!!

    Man. I really think we can do this for the big guy!!

  • The First I met Graeme was at my local watering hole.

    I was admired by the gentle beard he had been growing. The way he wears his beard with pride and joy is nothing less from how he likes to brag about his friends and everyone else achievements.

    Upon meeting him that day he made me feel so welcome and proud of my little 4cm red beard.
    He even made a promise to me that day that he will be my beard coach. HAHA.

    At first I thought “A beard coach” but then I Realized a few month later that he meant a friend for life and coach (life coach) if I ever needed one.

    Still to this day “G” has never asked for anything back in return. The way he treats people with unconditional love, respect and loyalty is the main reason why we became friends.

    Because a part of me I see in “G”. And a part of “G” I see in myself.

    Be strong “G” It is time that everyone else be strong for you.

    Much Love.

    Hey G man.
    This is just something small to let you know how much you mean to al lot of people out there, but especially to me as a friend.

    You are one of the most humble / honest most respected person that I know and I just wanted to let you know that you are not just a friend to me but a brother in my hart.

    You are a true person and any body spending just a minute with you will tell you the same. G man I wish you a speedy recovery with your back.
    You are always there for everyone else, now it’s time we all stand together and support you. We are all here for you buddy.

    Take care my friend.

    I have come to know Graeme over the last couple of years through sports and various other events, being from table tennis to Cricket to even out competitors in quiz nights.

    What has made him stood out was not only his absolute sincerity and being the full time gentleman that he is, but his absolute willingness to stand up for the people that cant stand up for themselves, and his willingness to help any person in need. He has on countless occasions stepped up and put together fund raisers and groups to assist people in need, people less fortunate than him.

    Graeme is the kind of person that, although through his current circumstances cant be on the field personally, would come in support and still arrange all the details so the rest of us can enjoy the things we love the most.
    He never ask for anything in return, not even a thank you as his extension in seeing the joy in others comes from a place of absolute unconditional kindness.

    He is the guy that have brought so many together, not only the “G-man” for his names sake but the G-man in terms of his gentle nature. I cant think of a more deserving person to get assistance in any way or form. People like Graeme often put themselves last in line for everything, but this time he is at the top of my best wishes and the guy to be put first. He deserves everything that is good and kind.

    We all would love to see Graeme back on the fields, happy, smiling and doing what he loves.

    My sincerest regards

    Big G,

    Before we met, I always just heard the stories of this legend, this remarkable person that will always have your back and put himself second. The person that will leave everything when you push on his button and attend to your needs but also a person that takes great pleasure in seeing others succeed, express their potentials and excel at their talents.

    But today, having learnt that all these stories were 100% the absolute truth – I would like to comfort you that this is now your time for all of us to have your back and our turn for you to PUSH ON OUR BUTTON….

    We will be there with you all the way BIG G,

    Stay strong

    Respect
    Adie

  • Met the G-man on the cricket field, or was it off the field… cant remember, but i know there were beer involved and oh yes cricket. So G-man also started to trade in cricket supplies, and thats where i got my bat, man what a piece of wood… so boet you need to get better and get that back fixed, cause who will fix my bat if it gets a crack… i need someone to put some back into the repair… i need the best. Get well soon man.

    Graeme became one of my good friends so effortlessly, from the day we met, it felt like I had already known him most of my life and that is super weird cos we only met about 6 years ago.
    He and I have the same interests in sport, music and life except I like camping and he not so much:)
    He exudes love and has a personal code that he sticks to which is very inspiring. He is a gentle giant of a man but he will also react like a wounded grizzly bear should anyone threaten the people he holds dear.
    This whole experience has been horrible to witness because to see a man so full of life being in so much pain actually hurts my heart.
    Whenever our band performs anywhere and Graeme makes the effort to come out and support us it means the world to me, almost like his stamp of approval makes the gig feel sweeter.
    He drove a beard auction a few years ago to help a little boy and his family with medical costs for the repeated cancer treatments and operations needed and people came out to help not only out of compassion for the situation but because of their love for Graeme.
    He will not ask for this, he will try and say others are more deserving which is exactly why he is.

    He is one of the good ones and to know him is to love him and that is why we want to help him.

    Well, Where to begin….

    We met a good 12 years ago. From there we’ve become more like brothers than friends. I can probably give endless stories and make you cry in an instant but let’s leave the crying to him after he sees the support he has from all the people he has helped.

    He was my best man on my wedding. From organizing the bachelors to the big day he was a pillar to lean on. Nothing was impossible for him except getting me to actually stop working and get dressed for the big moment. I always joke and say he is my personal shopper. I think I own 3 pieces of clothing that he didn’t buy for me. lol. Please note I did pay him back…..

    In September 2017 we organized a beard auction to help a child with cancer get funds for all the procedures. They are personal friends of ours and I cannot describe the emotions they felt before, during and after the event. It was a huge success mainly because of Graeme. See the link below

    The problems with his back started a while ago. We used to have dates to go to our chiropractor together on a 6 month rotation. It became so bad that there were times he couldn’t move. I brought food to him, tied his shoe laces and once almost had to lift him from the porcelain throne because he couldn’t get up. He has braved the pain for far too long and its time we step in and fix it. He has done so much for us. Through all the hardships I have had he has been there for me.

    Buddy, you relax now. We got this and nothing will stop us from giving back to you as you have done on so many occasions. We’ll have you hitting big 6’s soon.

    With all the love in the world.
    Kirsten

  • Kirsten… as you say. Graeme we’ve got this!
