Greg was a really smart guy. A lot of people don’t know that. He was also a creative and wonderful artist. Greg would literally do ANYTHING for you! He was kind hearted beyond reason. I think most of us will remember him best for his endless energy, enthusiasm, and most importantly...always choosing to walk on the sunny side of the street. Life dealt him a more difficult hand to play than most of us, but he always took every challenge posed to him in stride. He remained his adventurous, fun loving, and killer comedic self to the end. His loss is a terrible blow to all of us who loved him so dearly. Rest In Peace my darling Greg. ❤

As I write this, I am feeling so grateful and honored to have been friends with Greg for the past 15 years. I am thinking about all of the funny things Greg has said and done as well as all of the advice he has given me over the years. I truly don’t know where I would be right now if I had not met Greg. He kept saying to me “There is someone I want you to meet. I really think you guys would get along”. Well, Greg was right because Tommy and I have been married for over seven years. I love you and I will never forget you. Rest In Peace.
