    Greg, I was blessed to know and love you a long time ago, I have wondered how you were all these years since I last saw you. I just found out about your untimely and tragic death. You were a light in so many people's life including mine. You lived a big life and had a huge impact on all that knew you. Gone but never forgotten.

    Greg is part of my extended family who I never got to know we'll. There is a saying that people may forget what you say, forget what you do, but they will never forget the way you made them feel. I can say that for the Leggetts, Greg and Valinda and Thad and Joanne... I will never forget how special you guys made me feel when I did get to see you.
    Special people! My prayers are with the family!

    Valinda and family, my heart breaks for the loss and pain that you are going through. You may not remember me, but I remember you and Greg from Blackbeard's Restaurant when I worked the breakfast shift many years ago. It was always fun to see you guys come in. You were both happy and full of energy and laughter! God has placed you on my heart - Jeremiah 32:27, says "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for me?" Jesus knows you and loves you. Seek Him and He will sustain you. May He fill you with His peace that truly and fully heals. I am praying for you and your family. Much love to you in Christ, Diane Thurmon Wood
