I worked with Greg at the house back in 08-09. He was one of the most loving gentleman I have ever met, and he was funny too. Always making jokes, and laughing. I will hold on to those fond memories.

Dear Keller Family,
I want to extend my condolences for your loss. Greg was such a great young man! I was the Music Therapist at Society for Handicapped Citizens probably 25 years ago and he was one of my favorites!! Always with a smile on his face and a gentle way about him. He used to like to come and hold my hand and definitely loved his music. Now I am with Hospice of the Western Reserve/Hospice of Medina Co. and see that I will once again be connected to my past. I will always cherish my time at SHC and special people like Greg. May you find peace and comfort in the memories of his smile.
