Oh man, this news just knocked me over. I am overwhelmed with tears. Maybe it's because Greg was just so real all the time and with that pic of him and his kids you just really felt like you knew him. The post he wrote about his own father's battle with LC was so touching, and I take some comfort now in thinking that he and his dad are together again--without any pain--able to help God watch over those two dear children.

Mary, please know that folks are keeping your family in their thoughts and prayers. We know your walk and feel for you.

I know Greg wouldn't of lived the way he was having to live. He gave it one heck of a fight. He was on here hours before he died. I know his family and it is so hard for them. Words can't heal their hearts but your nice words help. Please continue to remember them in your prayers..Thank you
