Sometimes there are not words that can truly express the pain that we feel when someone so special leaves us. It is then we are reminded that our Heavenly Father always hears the cries of our heart and is always ready to extend us his loving care and comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:2,3. May you always feel his presence and peace as we await the day when we embrace our loved ones again. John 6:40. Remembering Greg always in our heart. Extending our deepest condolences to the family.
With the deepest of sympathy we all send our love and prayers for the family. May Greg be another angel to watch over and protect you all. Again we are all very sorry for your loss.
