Greg was a good friend through high school and also through the years. We shared a group of friends, and spent many weekend hours together.

I recall all of us buying a toboggan together, and then breaking it the first time we used it, on a hill in Greg's back yard! We also had a Moby Dick book burning party at his house, after we finally finished that book in Mrs. Youngdahl's 11th grade class! I guess we pretty much hated that book! One of my funniest memories is that he and I planned a come- as- you- are breakfast at my house! He and I and one other girl and guy picked people up, and his mom and my mom gamely went right along with the craziness!

I think we planned this party while lab partners in Mr. Holms' chemistry class. I don't think I would have passed chemistry had it not been for Greg!

I'm sorry he passed so early in life. He was a great friend!

Greg was one of those wonderful people whom you just had to like. His easy smile and kind disposition were admirable. God bless.
