  5. Like many of our mutual friends I was blessed to have known Greg for most of our lives. Having grown up near eachother and attending the same JHS. HS,and College together and even later the FDNY we shared a special bond. He was captain of our HS Footbal team and I the Baseball team – his older brother was great friends my older brother and together we all enjoyed great times with our mutual friends. I like many have had many friends but Greg was truly my best friend and the fact that many of gregs friends can probably say that same thing is a testament to what a blessing he was in so many of our lives. I thank god for the time I had with my buddy and pray for Greg and his family often. Gregory I love you very much – you are the only one who made me feel comfortable sharing my emotions and I want to say thank you – say hi to mom in heaven and your dad I never met – we will all end up together at some point and i look Fwd to seeing you again! #boxbrothersforlife

  7. R.I.P. Greg..I cant believe 16 yrs have passed already…seems like it was just a short time ago we were 16 yrs old and having the times of our lives in south shore…whether it was inventing things like “pajama nite” during the summers when we were bored and hangin out at 7-ll’s parking just to have some excuse to get out or going to the arch diner on a full stomach just to hang out with friends and have lots of laughs at mostly the expense of others. Incredibly, now a lifetime, a teenager’s lifetime has gone by since you passed. It really doesn’t matter how many yrs or lifetimes pass since you left this life, the times we had will always be timeless and the memories we shared will always be forever present.
    Until we see each other again,
    Frank Espo
