Dearest Gregory 

Your spirit shines on, and you would be so proud to see your parents, sister and grandparents today. They carry you with them always while trying their best to embrace and live life. When we celebrate holidays together you join us and live on - in so many hearts. And it was at events hosted by your parents that I remember you carrying a camera, serving as a gracious host and warming guests with your smile. Your sweet smile, our chats and sunny disposition remains in my heart. I feel blessed we could work on blog projects together, your help was so valuable and it was always such a pleasure to connect. You are an incredibly special spirit, and that light won't ever go out. And know that you are forever missed.


Reading With Gregory

Shared by Rick Knoblaugh on March 17, 2017

When thinking back to the various interactions I’ve had with Gregory, one incident stands out in my mind. Back when he was about 4 years old, I was over visiting with Doug and Beth. Gregory was walking around the house reading aloud from one of his favorite books. I instantly thought that there was no way he was actually reading it, as the words were fairly large, and of course kids do tend to memorize their favorites.

I recall saying something like “Oh, he’s got that memorized. Here Gregory, read this,” at which point I handed him a magazine that I happened to have with me. Gregory did not skip a beat. He turned to the first page and began reading without the least bit of hesitation on any of the words. In his little voice – which was so cute at the time – he read aloud something like this: “In this month’s issue of Cigar Aficionado, we will be evaluating the various form factors of cigars….”

I was completely floored, as I simply couldn’t believe it! I remember reading stuff like “See Spot run” back in first grade and here he was far younger than that plowing through this magazine like an adult. I recall sharing that story with other folks over the years when the subject of kids with high intelligence levels would happen to come up in conversation.

I will never forget Gregory. My daughter and I would always have fun when we would play miniature golf or other games with him. Every single time we got together, I would always smile at some insight he would show that belied his young age. Truly he was an amazing person.
