I have always loved Gregg. When we were all Young Single Adult age we hung out a lot. There was a huge group of us that would travel to all kinds of YSA conferences and dances all over Alabama and in Atlanta. Sometimes we would get together with his cousin Joseph, who is like a brother to me, and drive to wherever David was doing a show. And then just hanging out with him in Gadsden. He was a good friend. Very loving and kind. That smile and those dimples and the sparkle in his eyes seemed to get him out of trouble from time to time. I haven’t seen Gregg for such a long time. The day before I heard of his passing, he showed up in my Facebook feed as requesting me as a friend. I’ve been close to the Compton family for over 30 years and have truly considered them as my family. I’m grateful that Gregg can now be in the loving arms of his dad, David, Andra, Trent, Uncle Preston, MeeMee and Granddaddy Compton! God be with you till we meet again! Prayers of comfort for Martha and his wife and kids. Love you Gregg.
