    George, Sally and family – I cannot express how sad I am at the loss of your son Greg. Working with him at VNA was a fun experience. I fondly remember his beautiful smile and sense of humor. So young – what a loss.

    I had the pleasure of working with Greg one day a couple years ago when he helped out at our office. I always enjoyed talking to him on the phone and got to tell Country Superstar Brian White what a big fan Greg was on my December 2018 Cruise.

    My deepest condolences to Ryan and the entire family.

    Rest in Peace Greg.

    Ryan, George, Sally and Family,

    I was truly shocked and saddened to hear about Greg. I always enjoyed working with him at the VNA and enjoyed his presence at our get togethers. He always added something special to our gatherings and I was so happy when I heard about his marriage. Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayers and know that he will occupy my thoughts for a long time to come.

    I am so sorry about your loss. I was hoping to share some encouragement from the bible that is found at acts 24:14 and that mentions that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. So we have a beautiful hope of seeing our loved ones again. I hope this helps.

Please share your thoughts ...
