Greg, You will always be "My Babe", friend, lover, secret obsession. So much love and fun we shared. The years we had will never be forgotten. I miss the times we shared as a family with Tammy, Kashi, and G, as well as our personal time. I will always love you and will see you again one day. Until then enjoy your pranks in heaven with Kenny and Tabby.

I and my entire family will miss and love Greg for the rest of our lives. His humor and ability to make everyone laugh will be a gift that we can never hear again, but we will never forget. And we will never forget all the other great memories of Greg because they are a gift we can still cherish.

Greg was an incredible man and it is impossible to put into words how much he means to me and how much I will miss him. Although our time was cut short, Greg was my soul mate. Never did I think that I would meet the man of my dreams and create a life and relationship out of a harmless conversation on a Thursday night in September. He has left lasting impressions and wonderful memories imprinted on our hearts. From his beautiful laugh and glowing smile to all the funny jokes we shared. The best part of each day was waking up to see him by my side and the best part of each night was going to sleep knowing he was laying next to me. On the difficult days, no matter how hard things got, or how scary it was, all I had to do was see him and sit in his embrace to make me realize that nothing else mattered. Although I was not able to say my goodbyes, I know that we will see each other again. We will embrace, and our souls will unite for our eternal sunlight and happiness together. I love you My King, My love, my everything. I will hold you with me until we meet again. I mooper love you, my space angel.

Greg was loved by many. Especially, his son who bears his namesake. He will be missed and mourned greatly. Sometimes our pain is more than we can take. More than we can speak or express. I hope that solace is found by him and those who are left to keep his memory alive.

Tammy, my heart aches. I will miss Greg. Fortunately, I have only good memories of Greg. That night with the front door. The look on his face was priceless. I hope in time you find peace. Please know I'm here for you.
