I was so very sad to hear of Greg's passing. I was a classmate of Greg's although two years behind him. He was such a cool kid and I remember he used to sign his name Gig instead of Greg. My love and thoughts are with all of his friends and family and pray for comfort during this very sad time.
I had a number of real estate transactions with Greg and very much enjoyed his honesty,friendship and help. I know he was very proud of his daughter. I am so sorry to hear of his demise. I will miss him very much. --Joe Eastman
Greg was a great neighbor and great friend. Susan and I will miss the many hours of sparkling conversation and good humor. We especially appreciate his ability to bring joy to our elderly mother. My thoughts are with you, Emily. Above all else in his life, he loved being your Dad. --Carol Anderson
I'm am so sorry for your loss. Greg was my cousin. Barry Stevenson
