On behalf of myself and my girls, Keely & Ava, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Since my husband’s passing, it has been very difficult to navigate life without him and especially with the holidays upon us. Our hearts go out to those who are also facing grief during this what is supposed to be a very festive season. I am extremely thankful to the friends and family who continue to check on and support us each day. I have been touched by the tributes and outpouring of love for Eddie because I know he would be so touched to be remembered.

He marveled each year as I decorated the house and put up our sometimes multiple Christmas trees, but he always loved our white one in particular. He had Christmas music playing around the clock and all kids that came into our home loved playing Christmas songs from our jukebox. My grandchildren’s favorite is, of course, Jingle Bells barked by dogs! We went to NYC every year and loved checking out the window displays and hotel decorations. We took the girls to “the eagle” at Wanamaker’s (now Macy’s) Christmas display show and Keely even got her first photo with Santa there. We drove around looking at Christmas lights and it is now a tradition that we have continued with Jameson and Lucy.

He was always very thoughtful about his Christmas gifts and especially went out of his way for me. He hung each Christmas card we received but reserved cards from Spins Nitely for the bathroom. I guess he thought it would assure that everyone would look at them. He wrote and performed in A Row Home Christmas in 2017 and he took on the role as Santa Claus. The man just adored Christmas.

We thank you again for your kindness during this time. We miss him more and more each day and we certainly will miss his presence on Christmas and as we enter the new year without him. We send you all so much love & a gentle holiday season.


We leave you with one of Eddie’s favorite traditions which was watching Darlene Love perform “Christmas, (Baby Please Come Home)” on David Letterman. Even after Dave went off the air, we would pull up previous performances on YouTube and dance around the house.

So in true Big Daddy fashion, I ask, what is your favorite Christmas song?

Big Daddy Graham’s Countdown

We wanted to take a moment to thank friends, family and the fans who loved our dad so dearly. We have been deeply touched by the kind words, tributes, text messages, memorials, and even a billboard! (By the way, if anyone has a picture of that billboard we would love to see it!)

There are not enough words to express our gratitude but please know we feel the love. It's an amazing feeling to know our dad had such an awesome impact on your lives. We welcome you to share your memories (even the weird ones!) with us as I'm sure we don't know all of them, and it will be a nice thing to share with his grandchildren and future grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Philadelphia Walk to Alzheimer's at or Magee Rehabilitation - Jefferson Health. If you're missing our dad's voice, you can check out his most recent podcast below on Spotify.

Thank you again for your love and support. We love you, Dad. And yes, you're the best dad in the whole wide world.

Debbie, Keely, & Ava
