    In the short time I knew Gregg he always brought a smile to my face. He always had the best advise…even though some of it was a little off the wall. I’ll never forget the words he said to me one day… live you’re life to the fullest. You never know what tomorrow will bring. And always live your life with love in it everyday. He will be truly missed. Fly high.
