    I knew Greg from court. It seemed like every time I had a case, he was there with a client. He was always very thorough and professional in his practice, as well as eager to help in any way that he could. I wish I could have known him even better. I would have spent more time getting to know him if I had known his life would be so short. I know now that we are not guaranteed a tomorrow and that each day we should strive to touch as many people as possible. He left a huge impression on the entire Mobile Legal Community. I hope that the pains he suffered are gone now and that he can look down on his beautiful family as their guardian angel. I hope that my legacy will be to touch as many lives as Greg did. And my life is better for having known him. Rest in Peace, Greg. You will be loved and remembered by more people than you could ever know.

    In my mind, Greg is still with us. He was a brother to us all at the courthouse. I always found him easy to talk to, and we often had nice conversations whenever our paths crossed, as I know he did with many others. Greg, you were a fine lawyer and a fine gentleman. Your loss in the legal community is profound. We will miss you greatly, and you are always beloved in our hearts.

    Greg and I tried many cases together and spoke often. He was intelligent, kind, genteel and always quick to point out the absurdities of the system and life in general.I am richer in spirit for having known him and numbed by his loss. Farewell my friend.

    I met Greg in law school. He was a fraternity brother (KA) of one of my best friends Dave Frankhouser – both of us from California. Greg went out of way to make sure I settled in to life in Alabama. We studied together, went out, watched football, etc. He even invited me to spend Thanksgiving with his family – his parents and brother were just fantastic to me. I wish I had the opportunity to pay him back in kind. My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family for his loss.

    My condolences to Greg’s family in this difficult time. Greg was one of my pledge brothers in Kappa Alpha Order, and we were roommates and close friends at Washington and Lee. Though we fell out of touch after leaving Lexington, remember Greg fondly. News of Greg’s passing has been difficult to manage for all who knew Greg – indeed it’s difficult to even believe he has left us. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Evans and Odom families, and especially to Greg’s parents and brother. They are one of the nicest, most compassionate families I have ever had the pleasure or meeting.

    Rest in Peace brother – you are deeply missed.
