Mary and Family,

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Greg was a good friend and co-worker. He was a positive influence on many of us at Three Mile Island. I will miss his encouragement when I was having a bad day at the range. He will be missed. Take comfort in knowing he is in God's hands. God Bless you all.
