Condolences

I can remember one year Gregory played his wind instrument as we sang Christmas carols together. Another fond memory of Gregory was whenever they would arrive in Ft. Worth, he would always run from grandmother's house down the trail to Aunt Clemmie's house to announce that they were here!

My prayers and thoughts are with you all during this very sad time. Greg was a hard worker and a gentle soul. He is in God's arms now and he is your guardian angel. I'm sure his mom and dad were there meeting him at the pearly gates welcoming him home. I'm so happy I got to know him and the person he was.. love y'all..
