Dear Amy and family, Greg and I were in touch after all these years from good old Greencastle High School. He was in my class of 1971 and I'm so sad to hear of his passing! Please know how much we are feeling for you! My wife Claudia and I send the kindest and heartfelt wishes! I'd love to hear more about Greg's life if you'd care to share it with me! Sincerely, Dick Hardwick 1512 Longview Dr., Fullerton, CA 92831 714 879-9559
