I remember Greg, and his funeral, my daughter was a baby when he died.  He worked on the corner at the gas station and the last thing I remember about him was getting gas one day and he waving at Meghan and smiling in the car.  That was hard when he died, so senseless.  My father who only knew him from the station was heartbroken.  He was well liked by all.

In the 7th grade at Roosevelt Jr High Greg and I had the exact same schedules including home room. We could not have had more fun. We remained friends throughout the rest of our school years. I never saw him after high school graduation but I think of him from time to time. What a good guy.
