As a younger cousin to Greg, my memories go back to Dewitt. Making ice cream in the garage together and just being a pain to my older cousins. I remember Greg as being kind and having so much patience. Loving support and prayers to Greg's family, including my aunt and his siblings.

While Greg was working for Kamps, he surprised me. I was writing the company and truck number down when this guy says, "Hey, Vicki, long time no see! Do you remember me?" Well, I did get the name wrong because I remembered Greg with dark hair. We had a good laugh out of it then caught up some. I seen him a few more times before he stopped driving for them. I missed him coming by my work and talking with me.
