I marveled at him... Print

When I think of Graham, the first thing I think of is the gracious way he spoke of others.  There were times when Graham would mention someone that I know from personal experience to be an absolute stinker, but Graham would select words to describe those same traits that made them sound almost like virtues.  I marveled at him.  Even his detractors were spoken of with respect.  I never heard him bad-mouth anyone.

He was superb also as a teacher of Greek.  It is possible nowadays to study Greek, or anything else, on the internet, by correspondence, or DIY with a book and recordings.  Graham's Greek classes were so much more.  Interwoven with the Greek itself was a constant flow of academic tidbits, Christian church history, denominational history, personal experiences and general good humor, combined with a fervor for the Greek itself.  His classes were an enrichment experience far beyond simply learning Greek.

As Jesus said of John the Baptist, he was a burning and a shining light.  He will be missed.
