Jerry Graham was the Co-Founder of Graham & Graham Eldercare Consultants LLC. He worked alongside Michelle as both a spouse and a fierce advocate for the needs of each person who crossed his path. Sadly, in 2021 Jerry was one of far too many who lost their lives to Covid. He was loved his work with aging adults and the vulnerable, as well as their families. We honor him for the light he brought to this world.
