Morning – my name is Stacy Abder.
I am so happy that so many of you from so many of Greg’s many communities and family could be here to support each other and share memories of our Greg, and I hope that I can talk to as many of you as possible.
I have known Greg for my entire adult life, since I was 16, and had serious plans to know him for the rest of my life.
My name is Aaron Rice. Greg and I became “best friends” when we were 4 years old when we were living two apartment buildings from each other and have remained the closest of friends ever since. Greg’s been a brother to me and the Feldman’s are family to me. My friendship with Greg was the catalyst for the Rice family becoming very close with the Feldman family: with Greg’s parents, Sid and Rhoda; and Greg’s siblings, Howard (and his wife, Stacy) and Judith (and her husband, David).
I know that the Feldman family has been deeply touched by the great outpouring of love and support that they have received during this tragic period.
MY BROTHER, GREG
I have never known a kinder, more caring, or more talented human being than my brother, Greg. He provided more joy and more healing to others in his 33 years than most people could ever hope to be able to do in several full lifetimes, and the world is a much better place because of my brother’s daily contributions. We are all so fortunate to have been able to experience his many wonderful gifts.
Greg, Judith, and I have been blessed to have wonderful parents, grandparents, and extended family. My parents have always provided the 3 of us with so much love and a beautiful daily example of how to care for others. Greg gave his family so much joy and so much love, and we are all so proud of him and the man that he was. Everyone in our family loved him dearly. There really are no words to adequately express just how special he was to me, to Judith, to David and Stacy, to my parents, to my daughters and Shelby, to all of us.
