    We grew up in the same neighborhood. Carol B,, Chin S, Greg and I were thick as thieves. We shared so many memories and summertime was packed full of the fondest of my childhood. I have and always will remember those days with a smile. I thought the world of Greg and his beautiful spirit.

    I had the good fortune of remembering Greg during his memorial service today. We shared “One More Light” by Linkin Park; “Tears in Heaven” by Eric Clapton; “I Can Only Imagine” by MercyMe. We shared in the reading of Gods Word with: Pslams 23,42,46, and 90. His uncle Paul shared a joke describing Moses as the first tech guy in that he received Gods word from the Cloud and wrote it in his tablet. We closed with the thought of Greg reuniting with his father James Joseph and his mother Mary.; and also with God in Christ.
