I read the news of Gregg O'Brien this morning. I'm a dad and a former diver too, and I think it very sad that another father veteran lost his life pursuing this avocation . Even though I did not know him, I pray that the lord hold and keep him and bless his family.

Our Deepest Sympathy to the Family. God Bless!

Though we never had the privilege of meeting Gregg, we know by the impact of your sorrow how much he was loved and respected. Just know our family offers our heartfelt sympathy and that we are just a phone call away if you need anything, even just a hug. We will be there for you both. We salute your Gregg, may he rest in peace and be a guiding angel for your most beloved family. Kathy &...
