I can’t believe this. Greg was my best friend in high school. We took different paths and didn’t only saw one another in passing a couple of times. I have so many wonderful memories of the Journey concerts we went to and just riding around acting like idiots. Greg was one of the funniest people and also one of the best people I have had the privilege to know. My heart is hurting. I pray for comfort and peace for his family and loved ones.

I was, and still am, so very saddened at Greg’s passing! I am one of the cancer kids that had the awesome honor of having him as a nurse beginning at the end of 1994. He really was such a great, kind, and knowledgeable RN. My prayers continue to be with his family!
