    I’ve been friends with Linda for many years. I only had the pleasure of knowing Greg for a short time. But I knew from the first time we met that he was a good decent caring human being. He brought a lot of joy into Linda’s life, as she did his. They were so good for each other. I just wish they had had more time together. To his family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss. I know you’re all going to miss him tremendously because you loved him. And I know it hard to understand why he was taken from you so soon but I hope you find a little peace in knowing that he won’t have to suffer anymore.

    Greg was a kindhearted person and a wonderful friend. Greg and Linda were perfect together and so much fun to be around. I remember when Greg helped Linda and I decorate the table for a ball a couple of years ago. Not too many men help with something like that. He knew exactly what needed to be done! That was very impressive and a tribute to his upbringing. I had the pleasure of meeting his mom and sister Pam at the wedding and you could tell they were really close. Greg and Linda were a great couple and it breaks my heart that this has happened. Greg will always be remembered for being a great person and friend and for his sense of humor. May he rest in peace.
