"Molly and family, my sincere condolences to all of you on Greg's untimely and sudden death. Charlie called and gave me the news. Greg was always a happy man and a hard worker. I have good memories of him bringing Kenny around selling sweet corn each year, seeing him drive to and from the farm and just stopping by for a quick hello. May God's peace and love surround you during your time of loss and grief. Rhonda Jacobson"

"I'm flooded with memories of Greg from the 7 years of being his neighbor. He was funny, generous, and genuine. My Baptism by BBQ (as I refer to it) is my fondest memory, in particular of Greg. His grill and his tray of communal meat was shocking to this City Girl. He just laughed at me when I asked for plates or a napkin, and shoved the tray in my direction with an explanation to "just take what you want." My heart is broken for those left behind. Hugs to all of you. "
