    Every person has a place called home where they grew up and met there first friend’s in life. I grew up in brereton and Greg was one of my life long friend’s. It just isn’t going to be the same driving through town without him there. as the years pass, people pass, but my memories of a simpler time never change. Like when greg caught the catfish out of the creek and put it in the aquarium 🤣 Or just all the kids hanging out in the kitchen pasture playing ball he was always there. To all of the family my deepest condolences go out to you. greg is at piece and it’s time for us all to heal and as I drive though town the memories of you, greg, my dad, grandparents , friends and family will always be there to remind me that brereton will always be HOME!

    Clara Faye I don’t even know where to begin or what to say. There is no earthly comfort strong enough. But I pray God wraps his arms around you and comforts you. The un seen is the strongest comfort there is right now and the most reliable right now. Love you always.
    Paula Terry Michelle and Rachael, we were always like family us Brereton kids. We still are , you are in my prayers and thoughts always . My deepest condolences to each of you, know I love you guys.
    Greg used to bust my beans ( tease me all the time at Alan’s when I came home. 5 years Ago. I’d be picking lambs quarter and plantain and dandelion roots he said it was goat food. I said it was Country groceries. I have missed him all summer. But we will see him again. They Fred and Greg. went fishing with my Dad, when it gets to be too much. That idea helps me smile. That’s how I want to remember him. And the little guy that took the mountain oysters home for mom to cook them up. My two favorite memories . Fly High Greg,love you always

    I’m very sad to hear that Greg has passed away, he’s so young, and such a great guy. He was my neighbor for quite a few years back in the 90’s. A great neighbor. And Paula and the girls lived down the street in our neighborhood and became friends. My heart aches for this family. Sending you All thoughts and prayers 🙏 ❤ and my most sincere sympathy and condolences, and much Love.
