To Greg’s family, I’m so sorry to hear about Greg’s passing. I had worked with him on dress line from 2009-2013. He was very pleasant to work with and he used to talk about antique auctions he attended. I retired in 2017 so I haven’t seen him since then. I’ll keep you in my prayers.....Carol Frenzer
