Please accept our condolences. I didn't know Greg that well, but do know you're family well enough to realize he had to be a "good guy". May God Bless all.

The life of my cousin Greg was taken way to soon. I hope he is at peace now and with no more pain. You all have my deepest sympathy. I love this saying, so I want to share it with all of you.

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, but love leaves a memory that no one can steal!"

RIP Greg! You will be missed, but you will NEVER be forgotten. Love you all.
