Lara Ottombrino, or Laura K. Ottombrino, collections for Graham Bryan’s Memorial Service on February 2, 2019 in Carlsbad / San Diego County.

I’m posting this page, because I am trying to contact the trustee for Graham Bryan’s estate. I was hired to officiate Graham Bryan’s Celebration of Life service on February 2, 2019, by Lara Ottombrino. I prepared the ceremony, purchased a new PA System (Lara wanted to play music during service), drove over an hour to the location, and she paid me with a $325 check with no printed address on it (see below). It’s been almost 3 months, and Lara has cut off communication with me, after her check bounced. If someone would contact me with her mailing address, or the contact for Graham Bryan’s Trustee.

Please email me directly at
I’ll copy the information I have below, because that might help someone find this page if they are searching on a related subject.


Copy of bounced check. There was a $25 fee from the bank as well.

Memorial Service / Celebration of Life Service

Welcome everyone.  Graham’s family wish to welcome you here today, and thank you for being here.  Thank you for your love, for your support, and for sharing this time with them.  It means more than you can possibly know.  

Graham is survived by his long time partner and fiance, Lara.

His 4 son’s – Matthew, Kevin, and their mother Denise

Alejandro and Andres, and their mother Rozzie


When we lose someone we love, we are affected in different ways.  You are all here today because you care about Graham and you care about the people who loved him, and we are here to celebrate his life.

The old cliché that time heals all wounds is true.  It may take months, it may take years – but there will a point where you remember Graham, and it will make you smile.  Thinking about Graham will make you happy – and you’ll be so glad you knew him.  You wouldn’t change one minute of knowing him, or being with him. 

It hurts now.  But that’s life.  And it will get better.


I will share some basic facts, the nitty-gritty details, about the life of your loved one.  And then, you will get to know Graham through the words of those who loved him most.

We are gathered here as a group to honor and remember Graham, and to support each other during a time of loss and heartache.  We are here to laugh, to cry, and most of all to think about and talk about this special person, and how he affected those around him.

After our scheduled speakers have had their say, I will open the floor to those of you who would like to say a few words remembering their friend.

Graham was a 4th generation native Californian.  He was born in San Francisco on May 4, 1958.

He was an only child, and so was his mother – he never knew his father.  His maternal grandparent’s helped raise him as he grew up in the City.

Graham went to Riorden Catholic High School where he played football, later he attended San Francisco Community College for a while, but decided that owning and running his own business was priority number one!

He had 4 son’s from 2 marriages Matthew and Kevin,  then Alejandro and Andres all of whom are here  

From a very young age Graham was always the entrepreneur.  

At age 6 he would hand deliver prescription’s from the local pharmacy to his elderly neighbors for a fee.  

He started working with his Mom at age 10 colllecting and selling tickets for the concerts she promoted – and as a side line he would sell popcorn and drinks to the people sitting in the highest level seats.  

He opened his first business at age 18 and by age 19 he had made his first million dollars!

Graham loved to travel – and he did so extensively throughout his life – starting at age 16 going to Switzerland for 3 months.

He loved American history and this country

He loved coaching his son’s in football and he officiated high school and college sports.  

Graham loved to cook and eat!  

He enjoyed fine red wine.  

He was always willing to lend a hand and he enjoyed entertaining friends and family.  



At this point, I would like to honor Graham by saying the Lords Prayer.  And then we will have a minute of quiet for each of us to say our own prayers, remember Graham, his family, and to be thankful for the grace which is present here today with us.

Please bow your heads in prayer.    – Trespassers or debtors?

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.'”

Please take a minute in silence.

Celtic Blessing

May the roads rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rain fall soft upon your fields

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

Then I would like to play a video montage – 4 mins long

Thank you everyone.  At this time, would Lara and her friend _______

please come forward to share a poem Lara wrote

Would Ted Sprink please come forward to read one of my favorite poems called The Dash, and share his words aobut his friend

Dan Lem to read  “Living Bouquets”

Alan Taylor to read ““ Miss me but let me go”

At this time, I would like to invite any of you who have a favorite memory or a thought to share about Graham come forward – and please use the microphone and tell me your name.

On behalf of Graham’s family, thank you all so very much for joining them today, and for sharing your memories.  Listen to these words that were carved on a headstone in Ireland: “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory that no one can steal”  

Hopefully we can have the dove release

The family would like to invite you to go outside to the back pond and meet them there for something special… (PLEASE ASK THE GUESTS TO WAIT UNTIL HIS SONS AND I HAVE EXITED FIRST)

​The Dash – by Linda Ellis, 1996

​I read of a man who stood to speak

at the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on the tombstone

from the beginning…to the end.

He noted that first came the date of birth

and spoke the following date with tears,

but he said what mattered most of all

was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time

that they spent alive on earth.

And now only those who loved them

know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own,

the cars…the house…the cash.

What matters is how we live and love

and how we spend our dash.

So, think about this long and hard.

Are there things you’d like to change?

For you never know how much time is left

that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough

to consider what’s true and real

and always try to understand

​the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger

and show appreciation more

and love the people in our lives

like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect

and more often wear a smile,

remembering that this special dash

might only last a little while.

​So, when your eulogy is being read,

with your life’s actions to rehash…

would you be proud of the things they say

about how you spent YOUR dash?

Living Bouquets

When I quit this mortal shore

And mosey ’round this earth no more,

Do not weep and do not sob;

I may have found a better job.

Don’t go and buy a large bouquet

For which you’ll find it hard to pay,

Don’t mope around and feel all blue;

I may be better off than you.

Don’t tell the folks I was a saint

Or any old thing that I ain’t.

If you have jam like that to spread,

Please hand it out before I’m dead.

If you have roses bless your soul,

Just pin one in my buttonhole

While I’m alive and well today;

Don’t wait until I’m gone away.

Miss Me But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road,

and the sun has set for me

I want no rites in a gloom-filled room,

why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little but not too long

and not with your head bowed low.

Remember the love that we once shared

miss me but let me go.

For this is a journey that we all must take

and each must go alone

It’s all a part of the Master’s plan

a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart,

Go to the friends we know,

And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds,

Miss me, but let me go.
