I met Father Greeley when I was the Major Speakers Chairman at Duke University and he came to speak. As I escorted him around campus I told him that I wanted to return to Chicago and work in PR. Before he left he handed my his publicist's card and told me to give her a call. That simple act of kindness led to my first job and a career in public relations. I saw him many times after that. His twinkling eyes and charming smile got me every time. I will miss him and am praying for all of his family during this season of sadness. God bless.

I had the honor of serving mass for Fr Greeley at St Thomas the Apostle Church in Hyde Park back in the late 50's or early 60's. I knew he was a special holy priest even then. Pax Vobis cum Fr Greeley!

May this virtual candle carry deepest sympathy to Father Greeley's beloved family and Church, his city, his friends, and all who cherish his words. Prosper in Spirit, dear Irish priest!

My condolences to family, friends and fans. I have missed his writing both fiction non-fiction and poetry.

Speaking of poetry. Following is a limerick like poem about Father Greeley

When one's faith was on the brink
His words made one laugh and made one think
And led one in the quickest lurch
To the doors of the nearest church
With and Irish sigh on conspirator's wink

Fr. Greeley always believed the church could be better - do more for the needy, serve more compassionately, teach more imaginately, etc. - and he gave his life as an example. He was always "pushing the envelope" whether people agreed or not. He was a one of a kind. No doubt, as imaginative as he was, his mind is being blown wide open in Eternal Life.

Fr. Greeley has a special place in Heaven with the Lord. He brought His Grace to so many people though his books. May he rest in Eternal Peace.

Fr Greeleys care and compassion for the respect and dignity of working families inspired and made me a better representative of workers. His columns were always with me. Thank you Father on behalf of millions of working families. Peace

To Laura, Julie, Sean, Danny, Eileen, Anne and Elizabeth ("Little Bit") and all the nieces and nephews: Your uncle was a major mentor in my life, as you know. He was extraordinarily generous in helping me when I lost my father as a teenager, and he didn't hold it against me that I went to Stanford instead of the U of C! He was the first intellectual I met in my life. He always said - with a wink - that he helped me because my cousin (Cardinal Meyer) had helped him. He baptized our children, visited us every Christmas Day (before going to Park RIdge), and we had lunch regularly no matter what our schedules.
I loved him dearly, and although he didn't recognize me in the past five years, I remember him from before the accident.
He loved you all very much!

May you have been in heaven at least an hour before the devil know you'd passed. I will miss your writings and honesty about the church proper. Mentor someone from upstairs to continue your work.
