Greg is my friend and we were privileged to work together for fifteen years. Misty, your Dad was so proud of you and never failed to share about those big and important things and accomplishments in your life. As my time of working with Greg and Eva came to an end, I was blessed to see their own relationship take the path to their future together. I know all of you are heartbroken and prayers lifted up for Greg’s recovery will now be offered for your own uplifting in God’s Spirit during this time of enormous loss. Praise be to God for the blessings of Family in this life and the Eternal Family to come. Garry
