  1. Oh, dear cousin … the Meredith memories are flooding my head and heart tonight as I read this obituary. While it does not seem real yet, I know that each “Meredith Christmas” will feel empty with you and those fancy appetizers you always managed to dazzle us with! You were a very talented “chef” and revered by many for your culinary surprises! Your laugh and smile was contagious. So thankful that we had a chance to say our goodbyes! Love you, sweetie! Aunt Jean is holding you close to her heart!

  2. You will be missed, uncle Greg. 💗

  4. God Bless all of you,I know it is a great loss Greg was a brother to me, he would always give me advice, about changes I was going through. A smile that would melt your heart. He was so protective of me and my sisters. I will miss him greatly, but I will see him again. God always takes the good ones,know he resting in his arms. Hold on to the memories he left you.

  5. My condolences to Greg’s family. He and I were close friends and running buddies for years. Many great times were had, and I will cherish those memories forever. Rest in peace, old chum.

  6. Greg and I spent a lot of time together in the seventies and eighties. Greg once told me I would always be his cousin,no matter what. We addressed each other as “Cuz” from that point forward. Greg had a good heart and was always a good friend.

  7. Annamari, there is a great emptiness left by Greg’s passing but I am certain that the strength of the love that you and your family share for Greg will get you through this difficult time. I am so blessed to have shared part of my life and two wonderful children with Greg. He was a thoughtful and caring man and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Shane and Rayna!

  8. My condolences to Greg and family. His brother Dennis and I were best friends for quite awhile. I’ll never forget the great times we had as your parents and mine were good friends while at Bunn Park Christian Church (Merle and Millie) on Lennox. You will be surely and sorely missed.

  9. Annamari we are thinking of you and sending our love.

  10. So sorry I never got to know my precious cousin. We are family, no matter how scattered we may be. Our thoughts and prayers to Greg’s family. You will be missed
