I have known Greg for years, Worked with Greg. Even loaned him money. I watched him take his home place and work hard to make it just right for he and Jody. He was a good steward of the land and wildlife he hunted. Most important I loved watching he and Jody grow stronger and more loving for one another. Don’t ever say a negative word about one, even in teasing, cause the other isn’t going to stand for it. They protected each other in word and deed.

I always knew I could trust Greg and Jody and thankful for having known him personally and them as a couple.

Praying for all that love him, In Christ’s love, Mickey
