  1. We are so sorry to hear about Greg, he was a good friend and we had many good times with his joking ways. Rest in Heaven Greg... many gentle hugs and condolences to his family.

  2. We did not get to see each other too often as adults, but we sure did have a great friendship that developed as kids. We always had a lot of fun together, and our share of mischief (also in the spirit of fun). Gary, you, and I were only a few months apart in age and had a special bond because of it. I wonder what it was like when our moms walked together with their bellies sticking out carrying the best of the Winterhalters. I will miss you Greg, but our memories of you will never fade. Rest Cousin Greg! Love and Prayers from the Sweet's! Eric

  3. To Ellen and Jeff,my classmates so sorry for your loss
