    I was so sorry to learn of Greg’s death. I still remember him as that smart boy with a great sense of humor that I had in my class of fourth graders. My sympathy to his friends and family. May he rest in peace.

    Greg you were one of the nicest guys that I had met. You just told me that you wanted to put a ring on Nicole’s finger. You told me you also wanted to have a baby with her. You were so great with Bjorn and Vivian .
    They loved you so much and taught them many things.
    Who is going to be my DMV
    inspector. And decide if I failed or passed. I loved that when you would give me crap about being to far from the curb. I love you Greg and I’m going to miss you so very much. You are one of many who have suddenly passed, you were the 4th in less than 3 weeks and now I have heard that your grandmother also passed away. So 5 in less than 3 weeks. REST IN PEACE
    You are greatly missed but will live on in my heart.
