"Janice, I am so very sorry for your loss. I only met you and Greg through the office visits and the connection I made with you and Greg runs deep. When I saw Greg listed in the obituaries I felt so heartbroken, He was one of my patients that became a very dear friend. Four years younger than me and such a strong, beautiful friend gone way before he should be. I?ve thought about him and you so often since I?ve retired. He was so close to God, had made his peace and was ready to go. I miss our conversations about life, his love for you, death and God during his visits to the office. He might have been ready, but those of us left behind were and are not ready to let go of him. My heart is very heavy with your families loss as well as my own. He will be so missed by everyone that knew him. He fought a long hard battle and God carried him when he was unable to walk. Now, I pray for God to comfort and carry those of us that he left behind. I for one will miss my dear friend Greg, so glad to have known him, so glad for our friendship. Again I pray for God to comfort you and the rest of your family during the hard days ahead. Keep your children and grandchildren close to you. They will be a big comfort to you. So very, very sorry my friend. Darlene Blacketer (former nurse for Dr. Ginos)"
