Judy and Karen, I am so sorry for the loss of Greg – the man that made your family whole. I will remember him forever his humor, his generosity, his love for everyone in his and in our family. And especially for his love for you and Karen. I remember him for always asking the questions to find out how my son and grandson are doing. While his health failed him, he never lost these traits of thinking of and caring for others. I pray now that he is full again, realizing his suffering has turned into the peace and comfort he deserves. I will miss Greg. And I will keep him and the two of you in my prayers.
Eternal rest grant unto Greg oh Lord and perpetual light shine upon him. Rest in Peace brother.
