It was always a pleasure to go to work next to a man of Greg's caliber. He was a class performer every day. Deepest sympathies to his survivors.

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4 we find God's promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: (Search: Comfort)
