I hated very much to hear of Greg’s passing. I have known Greg for over fifty years. We had many good times together. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. He will be truly missed.

We are sorry to hear about Greg, we haven't seen him since I was robbed at our office and he was an investigator but will never forget him from our days at Bunker Hill. We will be praying for the family and may God comfort your hearts at this time of sorrow.
Love Ya'll always
