Dear Marian; So sorry for loss of your dear brother. I know you got along great and spent lots of time together. I have also lost my only sibling and we were best friends. When my husband and I bought our second home we moved to same subdivision so our families could be close by each other. I know this will be a big adjustment in your life. Try and remember all the good times you shared. Lean on your friends and family near and far.

I've worked with Greg in various capacities since Aon/NFS and again at Torrent. Almost weekly, Greg and I would bond over music and discuss our favorite albums or what we were listening to that day. Greg always showed me kindness and patience, though, he was direct when he needed to be. I think more than anything, I'll miss his laugh - it just made the day better. My sincerest condolences on your family's loss.

Dear Marian, Thinking of you and sending so much love and so many prayers. If I talked to Greg, his KOC involvement would be among his biggest accomplishments. Very much like him: family, tradition, honor, helping, community and class. During our college years, he was my kid brother too. All of the time I have known your family- he has been an excellent son, brother, church member and friend to his guy group. I can’t imagine a better brother for you or how much his loss will be felt in your life. He is joyful now to be with your parents and to be enjoying his reward in heaven with our Father. They all join us still on earth who love you- wishing you comfort, peace, love and support. Rest well, good and faithful servant- dear Greg xoxo

Dear Marian, I am so sorry about the loss of Greg. I haven’t talked to him in awhile since I left Facebook, but I think about our time together as kids very often and it always brings a smile to my face. Playing backyard baseball and football, sledding in the winter in the backyard and building ramps to jump off of and playing kick the can! Your basement at the time had the best hiding places. Greg and I had similar tastes in music and I liked reading about what he was listening to. My baseball career was heavily influenced by Greg and your Dad by starting out in 3&2 baseball. I am so sorry about your loss.

Marian, I know how close you and Greg were. I only met him the one time, but he seemed so gentle and caring when he met the kittens. I'm sure Thomas and Jasper are completely at a loss. What a tragedy. I'm so sorry.

I worked with Greg for almost 14 years. He was one of the kindest people I have ever had the privilege of working with. He was always eager to help and had a great sense of humor. He was such a bright light in this dark world. He was such a godly man. He made a lot of people smile and feel important. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He lived his life well.

I am so very sorry for the loss of your brother. He was one wonderful coworker when I lived in Kansas. It was a total shock to me when I heard the news. My daughter Katie Tranckino also worked with Greg at First Horizon mortgage company. We both offer our prayers and may Greg rest in peace.
