I didn't know him but I feel that this is so unfair that people keep dying like this. I can say that because he did change his life around maybe it was his time. But why do people have to go this way my cousin was 99 and just a month later we are up to 107 this is sick how a person can just take someone's life with no remorse at at all
God help us and watch over us I pray for the victim's families and for the people that do these things.

Greg was an amazing young man, and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to know him. His smile was contagious and his insight granted him wisdom beyond his years. He was just beginning to live his dreams, and I can only hope that he is able to see how he has touched the lives of his family, friends, and strangers.
