    Dear Norma , Greg Jr and Tysheeta

    Please know that I mourn with you and pray that God comfort you in the days, weeks and month’s ahead. I am grateful and so blessed to have worked with Greg. His wit, humor and empathy towards others will be missed by me and so many others. I know how much his grand children meant to him and Norma, how he was always looking for ways to surprise them he truly loved his family. A true family man. I will miss his chocolate chip cookie runs to McDonald’s. His polite hey how you doing Jay and his big grin as he would just shake his head. Always willing to help and never to busy to listen. God put Greg in our lives to bring a laugh when it was so needed and smile just at the right time. Blessing come in all forms and in many fashions. Greg I know you are above with Christ our Lord watching over your family with a witty punch line or 2 just ready to be used at that pivotal moment.
    Until we meet again brother I will cherish the memories.
    Your Friend,
    Jay

    Our sincere and deepest condolences to Norma, Greg Jr., Tysheeta an the entire Stewart Family. Greg was such an incredible person which words cannot describe. He touched and blessed so many lives, always looking for ways to brighten your day or lend a hand, yet never expecting anything in return. Gardner-Gibson was incredibly lucky to have Greg as part of our family. He will be forever remembered and deeply missed. Life can be short and many times unfair, however one thing is for certain, Greg took every opportunity to become a better person and make the world a better place. He is an example for us all! Now Greg sits with our Lord Jesus Christ, watching over us all!. He continues to guide us not in person but from above through God’s Holy Spirit. I know his presence is with all of us and he will continue guiding us to become better people. God bless you Greg.
    Love,
    Bobby Hyer & Family
