Our family knows this will be huge loss for you. Greg was always larger than life to me, he was the big, cool cousin I had hopes that I could be as cool and manly as him. Even as I grew older I can’t help but think of him as a man’s man yet also such a gentleman with how kind and compassionate he was, especially to me as a pesky little cousin and later to my daughter at family reunions. We will be praying for “the GOD of all comfort” to comfort you in ways only HE can through this season of loss and grief.

Thinking of all the Jorgensen families during this difficult time of loss. My deepest sympathies to all. I am proud that we were cousins and have shared moments throughout our lives. Greg always lite up the room with his positive presence. To say he will be missed is an understatement.

When discussing who is your favorite Tarzan, hands down Greg will always be mine. He could swing across that ditch on 20th street like no one’s business. To his family, my heart and prayers are with you all. I only wish there was something I could say to lessen the heart. He will always be with you!

I can not begin to say how sorry I am for the loss of a family member and loved one.

I know all to well that feeling. God placed us here for a reason.

he has just decided his journey here is done.

May God bless you and your family and may he forever rest in peace.
