Greg is so at peace now. I'm sure they have been having a party of some sort in heaven, prob not a Hog roast but prob the next best thing. He is the best cousin a gal could ask for, even tho he seemed like a brother to me. I have so many memories with this guy and Pam. Gonna miss making more with him. The main one I can think of when I was smashed, we went to a bar, called the bartender a" b" give me a beer and Greg was asked to take his friend and leave. He was always there for me, and now what am I gonna do with out that brotherly love? RIP Cousin, i love you
