Let God's graces and the cherished memories of Greg be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Greg Dobrenchuk, who was born on March 18, 1951 and passed away on December 21, 2010.

We will love, miss, and remember Greg forever.... We are grateful for the many cherished memories of him that we will always have, and we take comfort in knowing that Greg now rests in peace in God's Heavenly Kingdom.

Remember Me

To the Living, I am gone,
To the sorrowful, I will never return;
To the angry, I was cheated.
But to the happy, I am at peace.
To the faithful, I have never left.
Talk to me, and I will hear,
your prayers, they com
fort me,
your laughter makes me laugh,
but don't weep
for me as I have my reward,
I am with the Father and He will never let me perish,
The Lord com
forts me, and longs to comfort you.
So be happy my family and don't despair,
I am in good hands, waiting
for the day when
the Lord calls you to come home.
