So long "Lone Ranger" I will miss our monthly phone calls and your voice. You were the best Uncle a girl could have. Thank you for all the Coney Island Hot dogs. I will miss you terribly.
Love always your Niece, Lynda

Our family will always remember Greg's visits with us. It was so nice to have him at our house for Thanksgiving Dinner and Football even when he insisted he wasn't coming. He was always waiting at the door for us to pick him up. When he got here he always said that he was glad that he came. He was a great friend to my dad (Bill Weinzierl). His 90th Birthday Party was enjoyed by all.
