My heart hurts hearing this news. Greg was a wonderful example of a caring, compassionate member of our community. He was always willing to step up and help those in need. True leadership at its best. Our community has a gaping hole that will be hard to replace.

So very sad. Many organizations would have loved and appreciated his leadership, but I remember he sought out the shelter because he wanted to be a part of something that was meaningful. He was kind, generous and had great humor. Heartbreaking. The Bordeau family continues to pray for Terri and their girls.
