  4. Dear Chastain family,
    I was so shocked and sad to hear about Greg`s passing!

    I have so many great memories of Greg going all the way back to his high school years. He was really a kind soul always ready with a smile. I always had the feeling that he was happy, especially when he was beating me at Pool! He will be missed that is for sure.

    I wish all of you peace and love. Your family will forever be special to mine.
