Gonna remember you always. And miss you much! Wish I'd known you better. I only found out today that you left us all. It hurts.

We witnessed a few miracles in the Barnes ICU while my mother was a patient in 2010. You made the situation bearable. Thanks, Doc! Love you!

Dr Miday was not only a great doctor, but a great comfort to my husband and I when my husband was in Barnes hospital. Danny ( my husband) coded twice and I thank God Dr Miday was there both times. The last time I will never forget as he gave me the sweetest look and said I am bringing him back. And he did, Danny was terminal, but because of Dr Miday we had 2 extra years with our husband, Dad and Papa. So sorry for your loss , to my family he was a genius and we loved him.

Respect
Posting respect for Dr Miday and his loved ones. He made a difference.
Honoring his memory by spending at least one time each day really listening with all my senses to one co-worker. We all need assistance loving and caring for our imperfect but wonderful selves. Play it forward. God Bless.

Greg seems to greet me on a regular basis through my Linkedin account where I see his picture every now and then. It is always good to see him and to remember him and to think that his smiling, relaxed presence is coming through to me through the interconnections of the web. I always enjoyed pulling Greg into a new social justice experience so I think he'd enjoy hitting the streets with me to support fast food workers who are fighting for a better wage and the right to form a union without retaliation. I wish Karen and Bob the peace which passes all human understanding.

I just found out about Greg's passing the other day, as we didn't have any mutual friends, I have been out of town, and unfortunately had a misunderstanding before I left. I feel very distressed about the news. He was a very kind and giving person. I wish I had been a better friend. I have great memories of him--of him playing the piano amazingly well with his own style, of us dancing to a playlist I made, of him taking some time off work to spend my birthday with me, and other memories. I will be returning to St. Louis for my last year of school, and I will be feeling some pain when passing by certain places we spent time at. I am very, very sad to learn this news, but at the same time, I feel that he is very likely in a better place and is at peace, his wonderful soul now broken away from that body. Greg, thank you for the time you spent with me and thank you for the memories, and may God bless your soul.

Working with Greg when he was an intern in the ICU was so fun. I will always remember Greg, his caring spirit, and sense of humor. Miss you friend!

I was an intern when Greg was a 3rd year resident and we worked together for only a few days on an endocrine rotation. He was absolutely brilliant. He took the time to show me where to hang out and where to get work done. It was clear during that short time that he was an amazing person. He cared deeply for his patients and was always learning. He will be missed deeply by all of his colleagues at Barnes. What a huge loss. My sympathy goes out to his family and friends.

Bob and Karen: I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear son, Greg. I may have met him once or twice as a young boy, but I don't remember much. He certainly grew up to be an exceptional person who cared deeply about his patients and other less fortunate people, no doubt a reflection of his upbringing by parents like the two of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

As a nurse at Barnes of all the physicians Greg was my favorite. Always so down to earth and always making me smile. Recently we developed a close friendship. There is a special place in my heart for Greg always. He will never be forgotten,he was so special. Just something about him. My deepest sympathies are with the Miday family at this time.

To the friends and family of Dr. Greg Miday, please accept my condolences. I had the priveledge of working with Greg every weekend night shift on the BMT unit. We both looked forward to the challenge, and art that is taking care of people. We discussed our upcoming vacations with our families and I looked forward to seeing him upon my return. HE CARED. He dug deeper and was inspiring to his coworkers, patients and their families. He took the time, time often many do not. Thank you for the gift of your wonderful son/brother.

As a nurse who worked with Dr. Miday, I think it's fair to speak on behalf of all of his fellow healthcare workers and say that he will truly be missed. He had such a great personality and often would make us laugh with his highlighter yellow shows or crazy work pants. He really was a great man and Dr., and will be missed

Dear Bob and Karen,

Greg was one of my son Gabe's closest friends at Walnut Hills and perhaps one of the strongest influences Gabe had in pursuing academic excellence. Whenever I saw Greg, it wasn't only his intelligence and sense of humor that impressed me. He also was quick and witty, kind and respectful, and had a huge heart that was destined to help others.

My deepest condolences to you and your family, and may Greg's memory be for a blessing.

Most sincerely,

Dr. Miday was such an integral part of my oncology floor. He was extremely bright and always willing to explain information to colleagues and patients alike. I will forever remember his likable goofiness and endless hard work. It's so hard to believe we have lost such a dynamic man, and my thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family. I truly hope Greg has found the peace he so deserved.
June 28, 2012
Though I hardly know you, Bob, and your family, I feel your pain. I hope that your good memories and time will bring you solace.

Dear Miday Family, Peter and I are truly sorry for your loss. Our heart breaks when thinking of Greg and the many times the Walnut Group got together to study! I remember Greg being able to orally spit out a thesis with such ease and humor. He was a great friend to Wes. Greg will be sadly missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all.

I was Greg's attending during his second year of residency. He was both a fantastic physician and a great person--it's always been a pleasure to see him and talk to him since then. His loss is a great loss for all who knew him and for all who would have known him.

Greg you will be remembered by myself and "the crew" as a brother, friend, confidant, entertainer, genius and so many more things. I have been trying to think of the appropriate thing to say and just cant seem to find the words. You will be missed greatly by us all but never forgotten. You have impacted my life personally in so many different ways and I learned so much from you over the years. I graduated Walnut partially to you agreeing to tutor me. Whenever you spoke, I listened and undoubtedly learned something. I miss you and will remember and cherish the times we had together forever.

I met Greg in the 7th grade, I remember him with his long, curly hair, his faded Led Zeppelin T-shirt and the way he already seemed to know everything while the rest of us kids were still clueless.
He was hilarious and charming. I'll always look back fondly on his sketches of our substitute teachers, he was quite the imaginative artist.
My heart goes out to his family and close friends. You'll be missed by many.

Greg when u told me just a few weeks ago that u worked 28 days in a row I knew that was not normal, but I didnt question u and now I wish I would of. You were hurting so bad and working non stop was your way of trying to cope. Your blessing of being a genius was also what caused u deep deep pain. I just pray now that God keep u in perfect peace. We had a deep connection even though we never got to go on the date we were planning. You are so special Greg be at peace now and forever.

Of course I feel as others in the sadness of Greg's passing. I chose however, to basque in the warmth of his great memory. Dr. Miday once looked me in the eye and said," I can fix everything. I have an awesome set of tools!" He did make our work a little easier to deal with in the darkest of times.

I am crying buckets in thinking about your loss. I did not know Greg but I heard wonderful things about him. Allyson thought so highly of him and knew him to be a very special, amazing, brilliant and sensitive soul. There are few like him in this world. In his short time, he contributed so much. Please hold onto the fact that it was you who raised a beautiful son. There are some things that are not in our control. We are here for you in any way you need.

Greg, you are a man who will be remembered without effort. Your brilliance, kindness, nonchalance, are staples of your personality that everybody privileged enough to know you enjoyed immensely and will sorely miss. Though nothing can ever really replace a good thing, we know energy cannot be destroyed, so we appreciate you still, effortlessly, weightlessly, sending us your rays.

Til next time, Greg. Much Love.

Greg will always be remembered as an excellent physician and human being, very caring towards his patients and everyone around him.. The time I spend with him during his cardiology rotation on my service and his interaction with me afterward was always very pleasing and worth remembering. We will miss him. We are proud of him.You are in our prayers.

To a young smart doctor, always giving all of us smiles and a chuckle, you will be missed. You always understood your patients and their true needs.

We feel a great loss, the loss of what he would have shared from his mind, his heart, his soul. To know these things would mean sharing his pain as well, and we were not allowed to do that. But it would have been a worthwhile task, and perhaps it would have lightened his burden. So often we say “perhaps.”
Grief is the price of love: we share this burden with you.
