My parents, MF and Sara Mayo, had nothing but praise for Greg, who helped guide them in their investments for many years. I spoke to him for the first time last December. He was the most helpful, kind, patient, and informative person. I was so impressed. After that 10 or 15 minute conversation, I came away with deep respect for Greg. But mostly, I knew I had met a genuine Christian. That speaks volumes about who he was. I am sure by now he and my father, who was called Home in October, have met up and have enjoyed their reunion. My mother and I am saddened to hear of his passing. Please know you are in our prayers.

I have many fond memories of our childhood, but to be honest I did not know Greg very well as children. As we grew up I have had several meaningful conversations with Greg. He exuded the Christian Fruits of the Spirit: "Joy, Love, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Meekness, Humbleness, Long suffering and Self Control." Galations 5:22-23. Greg "Let his light shine for all to see." Matthew 5:16.
I believe he was received into Heaven with a shout, "Well done my good and faithful servant." Matthew 25:21.
We mourn our loss, but our loss is Greg's gain. We will see him again in Heaven for eternity.
All my love and prayers,
Becky Humphreys Smallwood

Our fathers were good buddies, which gave me the opportunity to know Greg. One thing that stands out in my mind about him is his overwhelming kindness. Through the years we did not see each other much but I always knew we would be there for each other if needed. There came a time when I was unavailable at my aunts funeral where Greg stepped up and shared his kindness to my hurting Daughter Sarah Katherine. I will always be so thankful for that. We have lost a wonderful man and Heaven has gained a beautiful soul!

Thank you, Debbie, for introducing me to Greg. I felt like he was my brother too. So patient and helpful when guiding me with investments. Those investments helped me so much while raising my children
I was so sad to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family
