Condolences

I am so sorry for your loss. I am forever grateful to work for Carolyn and Greg when I was so new in Wooster. They opened their salon and their hearts to welcome me. Greg was very pleasant to be around. When I saw him last a few months ago, he kept hugging me to comfort me.
I pray that our Heavenly Father will open His arm hugging all Greg's love one and give you comfort and peace.

Carmen, I am so very sorry for your loss but glad that Greg is free of the chains that bound him here on earth. I have been thinking about you so much recently but did not want to stop in knowing how much you have been trying to juggle. Please know my friend I am thinking of you and I am there if you need me. Isn’t Dr. Nick one of the all-time best. Love, Judy

Painful to see my fellow classmate has passed. We played football together and tested the line of authority through out our high school years when us "Outlaws" were always out looking for a good time. I will miss waving at him outside his shop and stopping to chat while at WalMart. He was always a kind and gentle man and will be missed for sure. Rest easy my friend....

I was so sorry to hear about Greg's passing. He was one of a kind. It's hard to believe it has been 20 years since I was babysitting the kids for him. He always treated me like family. My thoughts and prayers go out to Carmen, Paige, Jordan, Collin and the rest of the family.

My deepest sympathies to you, Carmen. You have been so on my mind recently and I didn't realize Greg was not well. Sorry to hear of your loss and he will be missed. Often saw him at Wal-Mart besides the restaurant at times, too. May God surround you with His loving arms of compassion. Tena

To Carmen and all the family, you have my deepest sympathy at this time of loss. Greg was lifted up by your unfailing care and love. Peace and comfort to you.

I am so sad to read of Greg's passing. He was such a nice person. Always with a smile. I am so sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss. One never expects to have to bury a child. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

HOW YOU LIVE YOUR DASH --

I read of a man who stood to speak

At the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on his tombstone

from the beginning....to the end.

He noted that first came his date of birth

And spoke the following date with tears,

But he said what mattered most of all

Was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time

That he spent alive on earth......

And now only those who loved him

Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own;

The cars....the house....the cash,

What matters is how we live and love

And how we spend our dash.

We are so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed Gregs smile and laughed while getting our hair cut.

We are so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed Gregs smile and laughed while getting our hair cut.

So sorry for your loss. I would like to share a story with you...I took my very shy daughter to get a hair cut from Mr. Moore. He was able to get her to talk to him and tell him what she would like to do in the future. She has always been into art and he shared with her about his son who attended The Modern College of Art and Design. She was a Freshman at that time but went on to go to the career center in Graphic design where she gained a lot of self esteem and is no longer that shy girl. She is now attending The Modern. It was all thanks to Mr. Moore who encouraged her to follow her dream.

I am so sorry for your loss and the loss to the community. Greg had a truly kind soul. He always had a smile on his face and a warm word for everyone. He touched so many lives and will be remembered by all.

My condolences on the passing of Greg. We graduated together with the great WHS Class of 1979. I will miss seeing him outside the Barber Shop and having a quick conversation to catch up. Rest In Peace my friend.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Greg before his passing and he was always joyful to talk to. Work won't be the same without him. May he live on in our spirits

Sorry for your loss. He was a great man. he will be missed greatly. Thinking of the family. love Mike and Family
