Greg was the kind of person you can only hope to meet on earth. He was genuine in his love of family, friends, and life.

With much love."Tribute from: Jim and Karyn (Waggoner) Dower

Though it had been many years and we are separated by 2000 miles, it was as if we picked right up where we left off! Your hospitality, gentle heart, contentment, and just general love of life added to the already warm memories I treasure from our childhood. Until we meet again in Heaven,
    Love in Christ,
    Krista and Jim"
