Remembering Greg with love. I can't remember ever not knowing him from Matawan Grammar School through MRHS and beyond. So sad that we lost touch over the years. The light in me still recognizes the light in you, dear Greg. Heartfelt condolences to Greg's family.

Greg & I played baseball together many years. He was always respectful of everyone, and just a kind, sweet person. He wrote in my high school yearbook for me to remember all the "times" we had during all the baseball seasons, and that I was a swell guy. Well, so were you....as you signed the book: Bufie. I will always remember our times together, and know that in heaven, it is always baseball season....see you there someday.

Sharon, Your brother was, and always will be, one of the best friends I ever had. He was the Best, all around, funny, sincere, and loyal. I had always hope we would drive his sports car again, together, up and down the Pacific Coast Highway.. He always let me drive, in fact, he taught me how to shift gears and get the best power out of the car.. and life. I will never forget him..I will miss him, we all will. So Long Pal...With Love,,,Kevin

Dear Sharon and all of Greg's family,
Please receive my sincere condolances at this time of your great loss. I received the message 15 minutes ago, I pray that your loss has already begun to heal, I know Greg and that is his wish for you, I swear on our dear departed parents, that he is OK, the suffering is past. I loved Greg, we were Matawan's Bad Boys together or apart, we ran in crazy circles together and a part, but somehow we always found a way to find one another, he found me here in South America, he left a number with my daughter in law, we talked, we laughed a bit and he hacked on me and my convoluted sobriety, I said, "Hey 'Starman' look who's talkin' to who!" We called him 'Star' and some of us put a star over his head in the yearbbok, the yearbook that had the both of us mysteriously absent for our awards as shining examples of the idealist rebels hellbent on self destruction...he was one of a kind, that one, But, I've missed him before, Now I know I'll here from him again and again...we'll see alot of each other in The Book, that I have been trying to finish for the last eight years. Please contact me by email, i am currently out of cash, so, you know how this goes, I would love to chat with you, contact me or not. Again, much love and prayers for your comfort and strengthening, God can do a lot more than we ever imagined, Greg and I talked about it many times over our 50 years hangin' ot here and there. Pete aka Petey, aka Tommy Smothers aka Professor A..H..., etc, etc, Namaste, Pete Waters
