Greg has been an important part of our family in many ways, such as a friend, a square dancer, teacher and a good all round friend. I last spoke with Greg around Thanksgiving at a Thanksgiving meal at St Mark's Church where we had a good visit. Most of the family we know fairly well and send our condolences to all of them. This community has lost a valuable asset in the loss of Greg, he will be missed by many.
We extend our Love and sympathy to All,
Dick and Marilin Berry
