  • I just saw this and want to send my heartfelt sympathy to Greg's family and friends. I enjoyed having him in my English class in Lundar way back when. He was a jokster, but never in a mean way. I still remember his handwriting, such as it was. :) Gone, but never forgotten, even though I knew him only briefly. RIP Greg. - Posted by: Darlene Kaus (Former Teacher) on: Apr 27, 2020
