Greg was my stepfather for a short time. He and my mom had 2 daughters (not sons). One of my sisters were spending the weekend at his house when he passed. He had gone to bed and never woke up. She and her cousin discovered he had passed when they couldn't wake him the next morning. It was ruled an accidental overdose. RIP "daddy Greg".
