“Your thoughts, support, and compassion have been our oxygen for the last five years,” his brother Aaron stated. Aaron, his brother, wrote: “For the past five years, your messages, encouragement, and compassion have been our lifeblood. “We did everything together because he was my brother and best friend.
“It was a privilege to be with him as he drew one more soft breath before departing us. I was under the impression that we were boundless…”
Aaron described himself as “so fortunate” to have a brother with whom he could have such “wonderful moments” and who taught him the “real meaning of grace, courage, and strength.”
“Thank you for sharing our pain and for making it easier to carry at times while you were battling fights of your own,” Aaron said as he honored his brother in front of Greg’s numerous admirers.
“Thank you also for making Greg such an important part of your life. I’m pleased we all happened to be alive at the same moment. We’re only here for a short time, so let’s make the most of it.”
