"Loved our laughs when you would come into Safeway to purchase food for Cafe Joli when I worked there.  No one could make me laugh like you !  

One time you came in while I was checking groceries and you ran up to me and in a very loud and serious voice said "Excuse me, do you have any more of the Criscos in the large can in the back?  I can only find the ones on the shelf with the fried chicken on it, and THOSE make my pies taste funny ! Do you have any in the back with the cherry pie  on the label ??? "

Without missing a beat I said " If you wait just a minute I'll have someone go back and see if we have any in the stockroom with the cherry pie on the label ."

You immediately replied again loudly ,

"Oh thank you ! You know, that one with the fried chicken on the label just makes everything taste funny!!"

That's the kind of humor I'll never forget that you always had !
I miss you , dear friend . You had a zest and spontaneous humor that few people have and for that I will never forget you . I am so glad you at least touched my life ."

"This existence of ours is as transient as clouds, to watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at a movement in dance.  A lifetime is like a flash of lighting in the sky, rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.  
By Budda Sakuamuni

Nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and impermanent, is the first mark of existence.

The extraordinary thing is that when you do accept death and impermance, you realize you're not losing anything at all, In fact, you are gaining everything.  It's as if you are losing the clouds, but gaining the sky.


To Gregors Kemains Daughters:

Your Father was a great man, he was not perfect, no body is, however, he was good hearted, had the greatest smile it would light up a room, and he was loved by many more than you will ever know, you were very lucky to have him as your Father.  
I too will always love him and hope to plant a tree in his name at the Wall-Custance in Onterio, Canada this will be in memory of him from All those who loved him. your names will be added to this memorial too."

"Hey Daddy,
I've been thinking about you like crazy and reading these recent random tributes I begin to realize that you are missed and loved by many, not just me. I also realize that your life started far before I was born in 1984 and there are things I still don't know and may never understand. It still hurts like May 19th 2011 when I sit and think about the fact that you are gone. Just that thought alone makes my eyes water. Aina and I miss you, so glad you were our dad! Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I promise to let you know more often"

This tribute was added by Sonya Guadalupe on 2nd December 2013

"Greg,

Just so you know, I always loved you, I just did not want to stand in your way.  I do regret not having our little boy. however you later married and had 2 one's. it hurt to find out you are not here on earth, I prayed for you today. I just found out , I had a glass of wine and dedicated it to you too. Thank you for your smile and all the joy we once shared. Hope your Family is well."

"I am sorry to hear about this today. we had met at Norman's Cafe on College Avenue, while I danced Classical Ballet across the street. we were together while he managed Joli Cafe, and I met his parents. I will never forget the times we had together as well he's lovely smile. I am so sorry to family and friends. condolences even if late, I had not idea until I typed in his name, he would have been the father of my child in 1980."

"I think of Greg daily. Tonight I was working on a short story about my days in Oakland when I cooked at Cafe Joli. Now I'm here. Sadness. Greg was truly kind, gentle, sweet and oh so terribly innocent. I NEVER saw him express anger--or even frown. Older than me, yet the perpetual younger brother--lathered in pain and always struggling. He knew how to love. I love him. timothy nazareth."

"I met Greg in the late 70s and we were friends for several years before life got in the way. I remember Greg as one of the most loving, positive forces I've ever met. He loved life and all in it. I just found out recently about his death, and it has saddened me terribly. I'm sure he was a great dad. I know he must have imparted his joy and warmth to a new generation. Lisa"

"I'm absolutely shocked! I've been searching for Camilla and decided to look up Greg, too.  I remember when Greg and Camilla fell in love.  Camilla and I were best friends.  It was a love like I'd never seen. I remember Greg as a vivacious spirit, full of energy and love.
May God rest his soul.  May the Girls find peace in the love he had for them.  Roz (Fluker)."
