Dear Wanda and family, I am so sorry to hear of George's passing. It's been many a year but growing up on Glenwood is part of my life that is always in my heart and sweetest memories. Here is a poem that has brought me comfort and I hope it brings each of you comfort.
"Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Everything remains as it was.
The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no sorrow in your tone.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again."

Judy and family,

I'm so sorry to hear of your father's passing. My prayers are with you all. Just remember, he has a much better view of his Jayhawk's from Heaven!

Love to all, Jeannie Schnellbacher

So sorry for the loss of a dedicated husband, father, grandfather and neighbor to all who were blessed to know Mr. Gregar. My life is truly better for knowing this close knit family. May all the good memories of his life overshadow the sorry you are now feeling and the knowledge that he is pain free bring you hope for the future. Jan Weber
