Graham Mason Emrich, age 6, died tragically on the evening of October 19, 2021 near his home in Adel. Graham was born on April 22, 2015 at Tift Regional Medical Center in Tifton. He loved everyone and wanted to be a friend to all. His hobbies were playing X Box games with his dad, entertaining his sweet sister, Gracie; and helping care for new baby sister, Gensie Ruth. Graham enjoyed outside activities, including golf, hunting deer, riding his four wheeler and swimming. Graham loved to travel to Disney World with his family and anywhere that involved flying in an airplane. A very important part of his life was attending Greggs Baptist Church, where he learned so much about loving The Lord first. Graham loved to say the blessing before each meal and his nightly prayers were amazing for a child his age. He was the epitome of what a Christian should be.
