My friend Greg, we shared some amazing times. You allowed me into your life and for that I will forever be grateful. As music was one of the wonderful things we shared, these lyrics by Jackson Browne are how I would like to say 'so long, for now'...

For A Dancer -
"I don't know what happens when people die
Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try
It's like a song I can hear playing right in my ear
That I can't sing
I can't help listening
And I can't help feeling stupid standing 'round
Crying as they ease you down
'cause I know that you'd rather we were dancing
Dancing our sorrow away
(keep right on dancing)
No matter what fate chooses to play
(there's nothing you can do about it anyway)"

Rest in peace, Greg, as you dance with the angels.

You are in Heaven with Darrin, Aunt Pat and Uncle Roger and Grandma. I know you are all sharing and laughing telling stories of all that has happened in our lives. We miss all of you! You have been added to the list of eternal life. May you rest in peace. May your family find comfort in God and knowing you are free from pain. God Bless you all.
April and Marty
