My Grandmother (Nonni) was one of a kind! She was the sweetest, most wise women I know. She would bend over backwards for just about anyone and expect nothing in return. I am blessed to have grown up with her in Greensboro. The memories we created make my heart whole. Going to the goodwill, the movie theatre, eating out, playing Skipbo and having the most delightful conversations. She will always be my best friend and guardian angel. I thank her everyday for the fruitful advice she has given me and how she supported me in everything I did over the past 22 years.

I love you Nonni <3

I couldn’t have asked for a better Mother-in-law. Sandra was a big part of my life for 23 years and I truly will miss her. I have such fond memories of dinners out with her, holidays, trips to the beach and to Louisville to meet her family and see where she grew up. Sandra was such a easy person to talk to and we had a lot of early morning conversations when the night owls were still asleep. It has been an honor to be part of Sandra’s family. I truly enjoyed our many visits over the years.

Fred and Family:
I never met Mrs. Gregory, but like you raised my own family in the Marquette Park Methodist Church. in Gary, Indiana. We too did what you and Mrs. Gregory did with your children at our church, and I send my sincere condolences knowing that your children had the best and loving parents. Your career time away from your family is noted in The Great Book of Life and God is certain to stay close to your wife until you and she are re-united in eternity. Blessings on your family. Respectfully,
Al Shanahan

It was with deep sadness that I heard the news. I can only imagine what your loss must feel like with your beloved partner of many years passing. Rest assured, though, Sandra is now in the best of hands with our Lord. May His peace that passes all understanding comfort and be with you now as you mourn your loss. May God bless you and keep you in his protective grace.

She taught me to love reading.
She furnished me with James Mitchner and Ian Flemming books. She sewed me the coolest dress I owned in high school.
She gave me Barbara Striesand and Beatles albums. She always gave the best gifts ! Except for the time she and Fred visited for Christmas and gave us all the
flu !
Also, when I was too young to hear it, she told me there was no Easter Bunny.

With Love, Linda

Sandra was a wonderful friend and sister-in-law. We bonded early on after she married my brother Fred. She was a wonderful mother to her 2 daughters , a wonderful grand mother to her 2 granddaughters and a devoted and loving wife to her husband. She will be missed so much but is now at peace with her Lord and Savior.
