Greg, We were friends through our sport's day playing ball, then thoughout High School.  You were a funny guy.  We use to run into you at either the Embassy Diner or the Fountain Bleu in the late 70's  You always had a kind word for me and I will never forget that.  Rest In Peace my Brother, God Bless You

I still can't believe the news that Greg is gone.  I went through all of Baldwin Drive elementary school with him and we stayed friends all through high school too.  He was such a funny kid . . . a real cut-up!!  I have such good memories of Greg and wish I had still kept in touch over the past 20 or more years.  He was adorable and I will say upon hearing this news, it really hit close to home for me.  My sorrows and blessings to his family. This is a person I will never forget.  It makes me sad to hear he was ill at the end. Hope he did not suffer.  Even though I had not seen him lately, he was truly a friend.  Rest in peace. I tear up just thinking of him.

Fondly, Julie Lancella Kingsbury
