  • Wonderful picture of Greg! In recent years, I renember him best as a fishing mate of my brother, Malcolm. Long ago, we shared Christmas days at my aunt Madeline and uncle Elbert’s house in Middleboro. Guess I was there when he and Andy were still in high school. They and their darling little ones were a great family. Good memories.
    I send my sincere sympathy to Ginny, Tim,Nancy and Rebecca and their families. Lovingly, elder cousin Judy

  • So saddened to hear about Big Daddy! Many good memories of FFFF at his house! I remember a very generous man who LOVED being with his family. Wishing you peace and happy memories, Ginny, Nancy, Tim & Becky!!

  • I am sorry to hear of his passing. What a gentleman,friend and spectacular neighbor. May he Rest In Peace.

  • I will always remember the nice handsome brother of my sister in law, Dorcas.

  • I truly wish that I was able to say goodbye to you.. my favorite uncle and my Godfather.
    I will always remember how you took me to the jewelry store on my 16th birthday and you told me to pick out something special. Well I did. It was a beautiful pearl necklace. Then you said. “Aren’t you forgetting something?” You also got the matching earrings.
    That is a very special memory I will cherish forever and still have them 50 years later.
    I was thankful that your gift to me I could share with my Aunt Ginny on your wedding day years later as the something borrowed.
    I will miss you.

  • My deepest sympathy to Rebecca, Nancy, Tom& Ginny…. I know that no words can express how you’re feeling –
    Bex & Fancy Nancy – you’re both amazing women. Love you 😘
