We recently heard the sad news that Graham Allbright, a long term member of the Community, passed away on Christmas Eve. Graham had had a bad fall and was being cared for by the staff at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow until the end. There will be a service of thanksgiving to celebrate the life of Graham, who was always strong and reliable in life as in his faith. It was Graham's wish that his funeral should be simple and attended by his immediate family and close friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with Norma and the rest of their family. We give thanks for all that Graham contributed to Othona.
