    We are truly blessed to have had Gregory be a part of our lives, he was most caring, compassionate, the kind of man that would give you the shirt off his back. No matter how much time went by from seeing him he always had that smile and a hug that made you feel specilal.
    He will always hold a special place in our hearts and I will never eat another Italian meal without thinking of him, he lived an amazing life here on earth but his journey is not over he will forever live on as we hold his memories close. We love you forever and always. Marilyn, phil, courtney, greg, nevaeh, and aj! Fly high our angel
