In memory of Greg--He will be missed

Greg helping with hay.  All we had to do was call and he would be here!
 A memorial service, organized by his kids, Nick, Alexandra, and Ian and his fiancee Linda was held at the Pradera Clubhouse.  His family and fiance requested donations be made to the Edwards Foundation.  A tribute to Greg said some of his favorite things were kids, animals and a love of the outdoors.
After the service friends sat at tables with buoquets of flowers and beautiful orchids and, in this case, a sign of positive sayings.
Here is the famous guard goat--Pancake!
Greg was a positive , hardworking volunteer here at the Edwards Foundation.  He was always willing to help unload hay, he always had a kind word and lots of encouragement for the teenage volunteers, and he especially loved "visiting" with Pancake.  He will be missed by all of us ---Animals included. 

               In his honor and thanks to the generous donations made by his many friends we will plant two 5 foot tall Juniper trees in the spring for a shade and windbreak for the animals.  We will also have a plaque in memory of him.  And lastly, we will be able to buy some hay for the animals.  He will be missed!
    The date of his tree plantings is the first weekend in May. Come join us to honor his memory during the tree planting. A special plaque will be made to accompany the trees.
