Dear Uncle Greg,
It’s been forever and so long that we even spoke, but you, Aunt Cheri,Tim and Shawn has always and forever been in my thought and prayers. I remember a Thanksgiving when you and aunt Cheri took me in to your home and saved me. I cherish my time that I had a family that loved me. I remember a Christmas party at aunt Debbies and you and I talked of military stuff. I always looked up to you. Give my dad a hug from me and go fishing. I miss you both. Look over your family and show them peace and ease their hearts. Wrap your arms around them and guide them to know you are at peace.
Love and miss you

Dad, it's so hard to come up with just one memory when I have so many. You always made sure we had everything we wanted before your needs. You are a true hero! You were the greatest person, husband, parent, and grandparent anyone could have asked for. Say hi to grandma for me. I love and miss you so much. I have no doubt you will be looking down on us and teasing us like you always were doing. Love you pop! Rest in peace!
