Happy Birthday, Gregor's life here on earth is complicated so having a cold brew is not as easy with old friends. Our son would have enjoyed you anyway, I am sure you are having fun in Heaven with all the beautiful angles and party in heaven is better than here on earth.
Love always your favorite dancer, Sonya

Daddy :-( It's been 6 years but it still feels like yesterday. I wish I had the words to explain how much I miss you. I don't want you to see my tears, but I talk to you alll the time and I hope you are able to hear my words. A part of me left when I stopped being able to hear your voice, and be in your physical presence, but I work hard to smille daily no matter what type of day I am having. Thank you for everything. You will forever live in Tenisha and I. I pray you are resting peacefully. I love you and I know you know that. Aina K. <3

I try Not to be Sad because I truly believe you are in a better place. But the Selfish part of me just wishes you were still here with Us. I miss your stories, and you holding my head or hand as I fall asleep on your shoulder (even when I was "grown"). I Love You Daddy. You will Never fade from my memory <3

Thoughts of you several times while I studied TCM. I had seen someone who resembled you in Sunnyvale, CA few weeks ago, it took me back in earlier times we had in Berkeley, CA I still recall the last time I saw you in Berkeley it was a chance to see you for the last time. you seemed sad? Miss you on Earth.

To Tenisha Kemanis on your experience of June 6, 2011 - I am so deeply sorry this must have really hurt you. I am glad you are a stronger person for it. I can only tell you he was a great person and touched many people. I am sorry that he was suffering. I was so shocked to find out it brings tears to my eye cause I found out this year.
Posted by Doug Dougan on February 6, 2014
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 .

In memorium for Greg

Shared by Julio Aguilar on February 17, 2019

First I extend my deepest condolences to his beautiful family; I was saddened by the news of his passing.  Greg and I attended Orinda Union School in 1964-65 while in the 5 grade. Looking for friends on Facebook I came upon the news and it hit me like a punch; I wished time hadn't gone by in such a way.++

To You Gregors

Shared by Sonya Guadalupe on December 25, 2013

It's Christmass 2013 and New Year 2014, I will leave California in the Near future to the Island of Puerto Rico.  I just want to remember you today cause it is Christmass and in New Years and all the days and years in between now and always best to your girls and family.

Youthful Follie

Shared by Sonya Guadalupe on December 1, 2013

I decided to type in Greg's name today it's 2013, here in Berkeley, CA  it's funny how life just slaps you in the face with your past relationships. I recall his smile and the last words I heard come out of his mouth as he passed by... I do not recall the day or time.

We split up due to my emotional upset about Yoshies daughter who had come between us while I was pregnant by Greg. I did not want to have the child alone, I was dancing ballet at the time for a very long time after. Cafe Joli was a very nice place I recall how we had met at Norman's he got soup and salad my favorate, later we would hang out at Sheldon's real nice place.

I was angry once because I got up early and saw Yoshies daughter there at Sheldon's I was pregnant and very emotional about this, after years now I realized our son would have been 35 at his 55 year, wow, how I regret this because I did not want to make his life or mine complicated, it was nice in the end he turned out to be a great father.  I had a beautiful girl later on. I always thought of what could have been.

I currently feel sad and sick to find this out in 2013.  I wonder why he died so soon? what went wrong?? was he ill? what happened?
