We spent so much time together with our friends after High School and through college. The time was priceless to those of us who were blessed to be with Wink. We all loved each other and lived life as it should be lived , with the joy of American kids ! I smile every time I think of Greg and I never knew anybody who even remotely compared to him . The best of the best and heaven will most certainly enjoy him now !

Thank you so much for the years of friendship. Our lives went in very different directions, but I see you became the man, you always intended to be. You have the love of a decent woman, seven children and countless friends. A success by any measure. Even though it has been years since we last spoke, I shall miss you very much old friend. Until I see you again. Ric
