So sorry to hear of Greg’s passing. He was such a nice person and always made,me,laugh. I can still see him building displays at 7-11 and making everything so nice . he will be missed and I am so happy i had a chance to know you. Rest in peace Greg.
So many memories fill my mind. I will never forget the things you’ve told and taught me. Our talks we’ve shared will always be cherished, as they are irreplacable. The knowledge you’ve shared with me will forever be with me. Your blunt honesty always a gift. I wish I could have had one last talk with you to ask your opinion and seek your approval on a few things. Over the last few days I have had talks with everyone in your beautiful family and all of the stories have brought smiles on our faces. You, my friend, were like a father to me. Your advice was always invariably wise. Your humor always witty and never meant to be hurtful. You were so knowledgeable, I swear there is nothing you were incapable of achieving. I hope one day I can have a beautiful family like you. If I am half the man you were, I’ll feel like Superman.
Your children truly felt the LOVE you had to share and continue to honor your spirit through the lives they lead. The stories we share, the laughter you inspire, the happiness we all feel in your memories. Your soul and spirit are truly a priceless treasure and I cant thank you enough for being in my life and allowing me to be a part of yours. Love, Randy
