This young man came to my house when we all were younger, he was a sweet young man and good friend of my baby brother Michael. I was so sorry to hear of his passing and I know Mike has lost a really great friend and is feeling your pain. Praying for God to comfort your family in these days of sorrow.

Sandra, Dennis and I extend our sincerest sympathies to you and the rest of your family. We didn't know Greg well but it was patently obvious to us when we first met that he was a kind, honest, and humble man who also happened to be a talented wood worker. He did a lot of work for us but his real gift was his genuineness. We were fortunate to know him, if only slightly. Like others who have grieved, we are desperate to find meaning in the life that was lost. I believe that happens when we discover or recommit to things that will make a positive impact in this world. Greg was one of those guys who thought of his family more than himself. We saw the joy in his eyes when he spoke of you and Channing. It is my hope that his example will motivate others, starting with me, to live our lives more like he did. God bless you and your family, always.
