To David & all the family my personal expression of sympathy. Your dad was my long time friend and a colleague for many years at the Free Press. He took great pride in his work and was much admired by all. I will always remember this lovely man for who he was. Blessings.

Dear Boon Family:
Our condolences on the passing of Graham.
I remember baby-sitting for Graham and Betty a few times. I was allways amazed that your father/husband drove me home.
As my dearly beloved dad would say, "Your next door neighbour, but one." May you have many happy,loving memories.
Sincerely, the Maylard Family

Our love and thoughts go out to you and all of the “Boon Dynasty” at this difficult time.
Graham was a truly comical, feisty, kind and supportive St. James street neighbour. We took so many wonderful memories of you and Graham with us when we left London.
