    Dear daughter, our grandchildren Mikaela and Joshua whom we dearly love, Love, peace and strength to you as you continue life without "dad." We remember Greg's big smile with his infectious blue eyes. We remember his willingness to have as spend 3 months of winter at you house as we escaped "Michigan winters." All the adventures we had with your family are priceless and will be cherished. In his words "when are Nana and Papa coming this year." We will miss you Greg and will hold dear the last time we saw you when you stayed with use last year, we had some good old fashioned family talks. We leave you with this message from Romans 8, v 38-39. Love and God's Blessings, Nana and Papa

    Dad, I remember having so much fun as a kid at Cedar Point with you...and the surprise trip to the “big ball of string”. I was always scared to ride the rides but you always told me that I’d want to go again when I got off. You were right. Thank you for your love and support...You are deeply missed. Rest peacefully in God’s arms. I will see you again soon. I love you Dad and your memories are close to my heart...
