  29. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Greg was a fun individual. I admired his sailing abilities (and during me government career years) his ability to find the time to do it. Public service is a very hard thing to do. So the fact he did it for 19 yrs and took on additional responsibilities of a Captain speaks for the person he was. We will miss Greg. by Brian & McDonald from Hawi Town, Island of Hawaii.
