My sympathy and prayers to Greg’s family and friends.
He was a fine fellow with an extrovert’s personality. I can recall with clarity and fondness images of him buzzing around Lake George in his outboard on summer days so many years ago, a broad smile on his face reflecting the joy he was having while racing across the water.
And I am certain you now are racing across the heavens with that unique smile that brought us so much pleasure while you were here.
RIP my friend.
