Ted remembers when Graham Taylor gave an entertainment cabinet from his house, to the Balmoral Centre, a mental health charity that he used to work for.

 

Graham Taylor, who passed away on monday aged 72, is widely regarded as Watford's greatest ever manager, of which was the title of a special programme cover.

 

Jaqui says "I always saw him at reserve games with Elton John."

If he saw you he would always smile or give a little wave I was about 4 then.

Then in 1981 my brother Scott had a big operation and his head was bandaged up.

I think I was about 8 and Scott was 6 we were waiting to go in the ground and Graham Taylor arrived. He saw my brother and stopped his car, got out and spoke to Scott for over 10 minutes.

The stewards were trying to move him on as the away coaches were trying to park but Graham wouldn't be rushed!

He was so lovely and I think from memory his nephew had had a similar operation. It was a memory as a family we never forgot this act of kindness.

Years later at every open day he always acted as if he remembered you personally whether he did or didn't -made me feel like he did.

He was a wonderful man and I'm heartbroken. I hope he knew how much we all loved him and I hope his family felt that love yesterday.
