Memories & Candles
I just heard the news today that you are gone. I am deeply saddened by your loss. I will never forget the good times we had when I worked with you. You really helped me overcome some of my fears and brought out the best of me.
You were there for me when my dad passed away in Aug 2003.
I will miss you.

To Amy and Engrave Family,
Greg was an awesome person really enjoyed working with him. He will be sorely missed as will Zach.
The laughter and zest for life that he had was next to none I knew.
Amy if there is anything I can do for you or help you with please let me know.
Take Care of yourself as God is looking after you.

To the Engrav/Redlinger Families,
I can't imagine the sadness for both families and friends. Like I said before I worked with Gary years ago at Mercy Hospital. I am so sorry for your losses. Both families and friends will be in my thoughts and prayers. If there is anything I can do let me know. I lost my mom 3 1/2 years ago so I know that it is very hard to lose one person that is near and dear
