    I’m saddened by this news about Gregory. I have fond memories of him growing up in Springfield. May he now rest in peace with out the pain and suffering. The scripture at 2nd Cor 1: 4 gives us comfort.

    To My Cousin Greek Gray’s Family, I am so sorry to hear of Greek passing. My prayers of comfort are being sent to you all. I had not seen him for many years and my memories of him are awesome. True Huffman style, he always had the biggest smile. I can remember he dressed well and always had a story to tell. I am thankful for the years I was able to be around my dear cousin. To God Be the Glory
