    I met Greg when he was dating my sister-in-law Brenda. He loved his family and sports and was always joking about something. I am so glad that he was able to keep a good outlook over the years and joke around about all his medical issues. He had so many struggles for someone his age to go through but he handled it better that most could have. I remember once at dinner we sat at an outside table, a car parked next to the table left and as another car was backing into the spot he took off one of his legs & put it on the ground and yelled to make the person think they ran over his leg. The driver got out laughing said that was a good one, but I saw you in the back up camera. That was some of Gregs playful humor. I am sad for his passing so soon, but he is at peace now and God has given him his new Heavenly body in Christ with no pain forevermore. Cherish all the Memories both good & bad, as they are what make up a person’s life between the dashes. Speak of him often to help keep his memory alive. My Love to all his Family & Friends, he will be missed. – Cheryl Duncan
