Being a woman and going to pick out a car was just not the thing when I started buying cars from Greg, he said get your husband and come back,let him see and drive, I said that want happen you have to deal with me til I get him to sign paper work,of course he laughed, I said ,don't call me ,I will call you. He found out I was true to my word,couple days,went back ready to get it,he and I were friends from the start, Roy was very fond of Greg,He was a man of his word,Greg was a hard working guy,he ran all over that car lot. God needed a hard worker,may God bless the family ,our heart is heavy,but I know God don't make mistakes.Love in Christ

Greg was my cousin. I grew up with him and his family. We worked on each other's family farms together. Visited, ate, and shared family fun, good times, life, love and laughter. Life was simple and times were great. Love Sambo.
