    Oh how we’ll miss Greg…we loved him so much! We so enjoyed our visits, Go Blue parties, New Years Eve celebrations…and whenever he was in Michigan. You battled cancer so heroically…it didn’t beat you…you chose your own path.

    Joy and children,
    I am so sorry for your loss. The first time I met Greg, he had a beautiful smile and filled with kindness and happiness. He made me, as well as others happy to be around him. The last time I saw him was at Chase and Nicole’s wedding and even though I had not seen him for many years, his love, warmth and happiness once again came shining through. He battled cancer 110% and showed his children that giving up was never an option. Heaven gained another angel and I’m sure my Dad was there to welcome him in Heaven. God bless you all.

    Joy and family,

    Please know that we have been and will continue to pray for all of you. Parkway Baptist benefitted greatly from the Bennett’s while you were here. Greg was a passionate lover of His Lord and his physical and spiritual families as well. My own life was enriched because I knew Greg. He was always a source of encouragement to me.

    May you draw the strength, comfort and peace you need from our great God. He is there always for you. We stand ready to help in any ways we can as well.

    Love in Christ

    Br. Ken

    Dear Joy and Family:
    I am so sorry. Many people come and go in our lives, but there are some that just make a lasting impression. Greg was that kind of person. He was an inspiration to us all. Your family has been missed here in our neighborhood. We could not have asked for better neighbors. Our hearts go out to you. Greg has gone home to a new neighborhood with our Lord and one day we will all be neighbors again. May you lean on Christ for comfort and strength through this time.

    Love to you,
    Larry and Debbie Alloway

    As an employee of Travelink I came to know Greg via the phone!! we had many long phone conversations about his illness as my husband had the same and passed away 2 years ago at age 52. Greg’s inspiration for life and the fight he put up were of great comfort to me-even tho he too was suffering. I wish I lived closer so I could visit him and his lovely family that he cherished,you all meant so much to him. I know it’s hard for you Joy as I’ve walked in your shoes and if ever you need to reach out to someone who has walked in your shoes please do not hesitate to reach out-Greg was always an phone call away for me and I am phone call away to you! Now is the time to wrap your arms around friends and family and keep the memory of Greg alive in your heart and mind. He will truly be missed by everyone he met-he never met a stranger. My heartfelt prayers and hugs across the miles to you all.
    in Greg’s memory
