Coming from different parishes, I met Greg when we attended McGill Institute. Then after I came back to Mobile on leave from the Army, I was happy to see Greg at a meeting of our mystic society. Greg will be missed, but not from my memories. Condolences to Greg’s family.

Such wonderful memories from back in the day with you, Cheryl, Matthew and Thad. Sad that we drifted apart after Cheryl passed away in 2004, yet will always remember the times spent together which were so many. Prayers ascending for Matthew and Thad. May God bless and comfort you both and all of the relatives. Big Love and know that Cheryl is happy to see you Greg.
