    Brad and family, I am so sorry to here of your Dad’s passing. Greg and I had a special friendship since we had worked together at Marvin for 18 yrs. He was so proud of you and happy when you got married. And gave him 2 granddaughters. When I retired I tried to talk him into it but he liked his time at the library. I only got to really talk with him one night he returned my call even if it was only an hour we got to catch up and he shared with me about his illness. I guess I thought he was going to beat it. He will be missed by his friends around here. Take care Jeanette Brown
