Reflections for Lieutenant Gregory Floyd Medlin

Happy Birthday Sweetheart:
Forty one years ago today was one of the very best days of my life. We will be celebrating your birthday this evening with your favorite food. Hopefully everyone will be here, don't know abour Will, he is still in Starkville. I wish so very much you could be here with us. I know you are in heart but I want you in person making jokes and picking on everyone.

I LOVE and MISS you and Dad so very much. Life is not the same without you both.

Please keep watch over us and protect us from harm. Love you very much.

Uncle Greg,
Just heard a song that reminded me of you. You and Pepaw are always on my mind. I miss y'all so much. Every time I go fishing I think about y'all. I haven't left anything on here in forever. I have a dog now. Her name is mally. I've had her a little over a year. I wish you and Pepaw were here to meet her. She's very playful. I'm still at MSU trying to finish up. Everyone misses you so much. I'd give anything to have one more day with the two of y'all. Tell Pepaw I said hello. I love y'all so much. Continue to watch over us. I miss y'all so much!

Hey Sweety,

Just wanted to tell you how much I love and miss you and Dad.

Today is Andi's birthday, she is 21 years old. Can you believe that?

Daniell's Birthday was last Friday and she was 17 years old. Both girls are doing great. Andi is at Ole Ms and Danielle is a Junior at OB High. She makes straight A's. I'm so proud of both of them I know you are watching over them and the rest of us.

Hi Honey, I am just taking a break from a busy work day and you have been popping in my head all day long! I just got out of a conference and called a co-worker by your name! He must have said something that sounded like you? He doesn't look, act, nothing like you.! Then he asked who Greg was? Thank goodness Beth took over for me because I still tear up talking about you and how blessed I am to have had you in my life, even for a little while. People do not understand why I don't date...If a guy ask me out, being persistant about why I won't go? Then Bam! I just give them enough info about you and us and my loss, then they give up!!. I hope you have been peeking down on earth for a few good things that are going on here. I have almost totally updated the whole downstairs. The next room is our room, that hasn't been slept in but two times since you went to heaven. My therapist thinks it would be good for me.Lol..I think she knows when I do sleep up there, I will have more issues and she keeps making money. Oh well, I will get myself together one day. I also took a self defense cless, intro to firearms class, that led to a carry permit class too. Now I am a proud permit carrier and joined the NRA the next day. I just wish you were here to help me pick out a new handgun. Everytime I find one that fits me, it's on backorder. I need you! Just isn't fair...I Love You With All My Heart!

Happy New Year Sweety, It's just another year without you. I love you so much!

Happy New Year Baby!! I miss you every single day and would love to hear you laugh again over how many different ways we traveled in one trip. A plane, a cab, the subway, the ferry, the train, a helicopter, and my favorite was the horse and buggy. I keep thinking back to what part of that trip 12 years ago was the most fun! I can't because it all was a blast! The funniest part for me, was you getting stuck in the lavatory on the plane. I'm sure you would still say it was me getting stuck on the Cathedral wall. My goodness that was along time ago, yet it seems like yesterday in soo many ways. I will never stop loving you!!

Thinking about you and wanted to let you know how much I LOVE and miss you and Dad. This is a very sad time of the year without you. I thought about all of the things I could get you for Christmas. Wish you were here so I could buy you everything you want.

I love you so very much!

I really miss you when we all get together for the holiday. I thank God for the 31 years he gave me with you and the 44 years with Dad. We will all be together at Howard's and there will be two very big empty spaces in my heart without you both there. Just know I love you more every day and will miss you forever.

I can't believe we've gone another year without you here with us. Still miss you like it was yesterday. I think about you every day. I sure do wish you were here to see how everybody has grown and changed but I'm sure you see it all from above. I miss dad so much too. Give him a big hug for me and y'all keep watching over us. Love you both so so much. :)

Hi Sweety,

Bad day today. I miss you so much. It was all I could to get thru court today. I talked Seiko about your time in the hospital. He said he turns on his sirene every time he passes the cemetary/

It seems like it was only yesterday you were picking on everyone and making us laugh. I love and miss you so very much.

Love, Mom

Hi Sweety,

Nine years ago today was the second worst day of my life, (first being the day you left us) when we got the call that you had been in an accident. I look at your web page every day and tell you how much I love and miss you. I don't guess it will ever get better. Tell Dad I love and miss him too.

Will is the only man I have left in my life now. I don't know what I would do without my girls and my grandkids. You would be so proud of your girls. Andi is at Ole Miss and Danielle is being inducted into the National Honor Society, tonight.

Keep watch over us and just know how much I love you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREG~~~THE BIG "4-0"! You're about to catch up with me--haha! I wish you were here so we could throw a big ole party for you.

Can't believe you would have been 40 years old today. You know when you hit 40 it's considered over the hill. I have invited the family for your birthday dinner tonight and we will have your favorite, creamed tocos. Wish so very much that you and Dad were here to celebrate with us.

I miss you just as much as I did 8 years ago. And it seems I love you more.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!
