Inda, Brennan & Taylor - It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter, and although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. May the stars carry your sadness away, may the flowers fill your heart with beauty, may hope forever wipe away your tears. May you take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you. Greg, we miss you and will always remember you my friend...

"Greg Jones the only manager at Walgreen's who had inspire me to be who I want to be, and not to let anyone tell me other wise. He was like a mentor to me, the only manager who see potential in people and see people as human being, he never judge,discriminate, stereotype or think less of anyone. The one person that I could talk to and get a non bias respond, He use to motivate me and always have a smile when he walk by, he is one of gods angel and it is a blessing to have met him and to had worked with him, always have kind words to say and it's rear to find individual as him in this life, and that is why he will forever be remembered,you may be gone, but you will never be forgotten. May your soul forever rest in peace.
Greg Jones hired me 16+ years ago, for which I will be forever indebted. He was my boss, but much more than that he was a true friend to me ever since that time, and I will always cherish the memories of that friendship.
Inda, it has really been 34 year since I have had the honor of yours and Greg's friendship. I can honestly say that I have never met a better man than Greg. Even in the pre-marriage, pre-kids and grand kids days, Greg was always there to lend me a hand when I needed one, often volunteered by you. You knew there was no limit to his to his helping a friend even when I was afraid of taking advantage of his generous nature. I don't know how many times we packed up his mother's huge truck with all my stuff and moved me into another apartment. I called with so many drug questions, years ago. He not only helped but he was happy to help. Fortunately the Internet gave him a break in recent years.
You asked if I wanted to say anything at the celebration, and I kind of went blank, but I have thought of so many things to say, since. You know how I have been pestering you to get together for dinner and you always had some reply that it was not reasonble at the time. I talked with Greg on his last day and am so pleased that I did. First he asked about my upcoming surgery but then we talked about his frustrations about the dealings with the transplant. What you don't know is the last thing he said to me was, "Lets get together for dinner!" ??
I am so impressed by Taylor and Brennan. I know you have done lots of great things over the years but none could be better than marrying Greg and having those kids. Brennan seems to have settled into a wonderful life with a lovely wife and soon to be two children. They have a terrific future. Taylor has great things ahead of him. I strongly believe he is going to make a big mark on this world. I am going to Google Taylor every once in a while just to see where his "out of the box" mind has taken him. They are very different adults who need to follow their dreams.
Dear Ms. Allie, Inda, Brennan and Taylor,
We are so sorry to hear of your tremendous loss. We have been neighbors to Ms. Allie for 25 years and had students at Boone with Brennan and Taylor. Greg's life was short, but his legacy great. God bless your family during this difficult time. Tina and Ken Siders
