I knew Greg when I was in my teens. Playing baseball with him in the 60's was a great time in my life. May your family receive comfort in Christ and know that Greg is now in a better place. My prayers are with you in the upcoming days.
Sincerely, Lory Hill

I met this man one time. I went to clean for him and kim, who I had met from a previous cleaning job, that led me to their home. When I left I felt like we had known one another for ever. Kim had not gotten home yet so we sat and chatted and of all shows we watched General Hospital. It is true he never met a stranger. I went to do a job, but something more than the money. A chance encounter with Greg, which I will never forget, such a Blessing 🙏🙏🙏. Sincerely
