Memories Timeline


  1. I first met Mr. Richard Greco in 1975. During the time in which I was involved with the Greco family, I enjoyed our discussions, our checker games pool side and our holiday visits. I was always very found of Mr. and Mrs. “G” and I felt honored being welcomed in their house.
    Mr. “G”. brought a very positive energy into this world and I feel as if the world has lessened, without him.
    May you Rest in Peace Mr. Greco.
