For the short time that I got to know Greg I could tell he was an avid UT Vols fan. Always wore his orange jacket. He was a kind gentleman.
Deepest sympathy for the Bailey family.

Ann & Don
So very sorry for your loss... I hate that Greg and I lost touch over the last few years, but so many of my high school memories include him. We had quite the group of close friends that did so much together back then. Young Life, all the high school games, softball teams, and of course all those visits to your house to swim, play cards, or just hang out. Greg was in the middle of all of it! So many good times ....
You are in my prayers, and may you find comfort and peace in the days ahead.
