The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof.

You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution.

All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign.

We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services.

In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice").

Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.

Please share your favorite memory of Gregory to be included in a special keepsake book for the family.
Gregory Clark Thompson

February 27, 1964 to September 24, 2023

The family of Greg Thompson is saddened to announce his passing peacefully at his home on September 24, 2023.

Greg grew up in Bolton, Ontario and in recent years had made Havelock, Ontario his home.

Greg had the ability to fix anything mechanical he laid his hands on and often had many projects on the go at once. He loved to hit the trail on his ATV in the summer and on his sled in the winter, when there was sufficient snow. He was proud of his Ford F150 and his Fox Body Mustang LX that he always kept in impeccable condition.

Greg usually could be found with a cup of Timmies in his hand.

Greg will be missed by his parents, Doug and Maxine Thompson, of Rednersville, Ontario, his sister, Julie, of Mt. Albert, ON and his sister, Donna (Doug) of Anagance, New Brunswick. He will also be missed by his special friend, Dani, his sledding buddies and his beloved 3 cats.

Celebration of life will be held at the Colborne Legion, 92 King Street East, Colborne on Saturday November 18, 2023 starting at 11:30am. If desired, donations would be appreciated to the Heart and Stroke Association, Canadian Diabetes Association or the SPCA.

...As Greg would say, "just for shits and giggles"

Danielle St Aubin

Posted at 12:18pm
I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last 3 years closely with Greg. It sounds a bit dramatic to say, but we were pretty inseparable. We went through our days together, although it was sometimes from a distance. We were often a few hours drive apart but made up for it in the fact that we were pretty much always connected. There wasn’t a period longer than (maybe) a day where we weren’t in contact. Not always about anything important, mostly just joking around and living our lives. He was my best friend and my go-to person. There is no denying our relationship has left me forever changed, in a good way. Although our time was absolutely too short, at the end of the day I am just so grateful to have had the time together that we did.

Greg brightened my life, even when he wasn’t in the room. His sense of humour was unique, but usually inspired by Jim Carrey or the Simpsons. He could be so animated and goofy with no shame. It wasn’t hard to see that he loved to laugh. I’ll never forget that - such a genuine, hearty laugh. Between his witty plays on words, silly nicknames for everything, and the funky little dances that he would do when a good tune came on… he just did so many small funny things. I can’t seem to write them down in a way that still sounds funny, but if you know Greg, you already know how entertaining he could be.

Actually, I’ll try to tell one story that’s stuck in my head because it’s a classic example of Greg’s humour. We met at a thanksgiving dinner in 2018. I was eating and listening to the conversation, and I had been quietly saving a beet on my plate for last because I really like them. Anyways I was just minding my own business, and I look down for another bite, and suddenly realized that my beet was missing! I stared at my plate, second-guessing myself for a minute or two. Then I look over and there is Greg, with the biggest, (beet) red grin on his face! Like really – I’d met this guy an hour ago and now he’s stealing my beet? Sneaky guy! I don’t know what was better – my shock or his glee over the mission accomplished, but he had the whole table laughing then. Later on, we were playing cards and he was poking fun at me a little bit. Apparently I have a dimple in my chin that kind of looks like a butt. Cheeky guy! However after we all had another good laugh over that, he made sure to pull me aside and let me know that he was just kidding around and made sure I didn’t take it to heart. I wasn’t offended at all and was kind of surprised by the concern, but that was Greg - funny, and caring. His humour was just shocking enough to get your attention, but he really wanted you to be having a good time laughing along with him.

Greg was such a wonderfully dedicated cat dad. We bonded over our love for our furry friends right away and I couldn’t believe the little herd he had. He often called them his kids, which I always thought was so sweet. I remember seeing him get right down on the ground with them and everyone would come over for attention. Wherever he was working around the house or in the shop, they’d follow him there. He always said that he thought pets reflect their owners, and I see that with all of them. They are the sweetest, and just have such fun and happy personalities. And they absolutely adored him. No matter what was going on, Greg was happy when the kids were around. I am comforted by the idea that he has been reunited with his sweet boys Cotton and Cobra that he missed so much. As for the three sweeties he had to leave behind, I feel honoured to be trusted with their care. I’ve definitely got big shoes to fill, but I promise to give them my absolute best.

It seems like one of the most common regrets that people have near the end is that they always lived their life the way they felt they were expected to, and not necessarily the way they might have wanted to. I won’t speak for Greg and say that he had no regrets, but it’s obvious to me that he truly made the best of his time here. He loved the Rush song Vital Signs, especially when it says, “Everybody’s got to deviate from the norm”. And that’s what he did, right to the end. He lived his life fully and was comfortable being himself, even when meant being different. No matter what life threw at him or the opinions of others, he lived life on his terms and filled his days doing what made him happy. I respect that immensely. He always encouraged me to do the same, and while I’m still more of a people-pleaser than I’d like to admit, my self-confidence has grown 100 times over thanks to his constant support. I can’t be more thankful for anything than that.

Of course, the things that made Greg happiest often had some level of horsepower. Whether it was his ATV, truck, Mustang, or snowmobiles, he was working on something. I have never met someone with as deep a passion as Greg had. I knew next to nothing about most of those things so I’ve learned an incredible amount, but even then I know we only scratched the surface of the knowledge he had stored up there. He lit up when he was talking about this stuff, and he could for hours! Not just about how to fix things on his specific vehicles, but specs on what seemed like every manufacturer, model, and options package out there. He was brilliant. I always tried to absorb as much as I could, but now I’m thinking I really should have taken notes or something. He also taught me how to do some of my own maintenance and how to drive a stick shift, and that time spent with him gave me some of my favourite memories. Just hangin’ in the shop or cruising around, good tunes playing… and Greg in his element.

Greg, I am a better person after knowing you. Thank you for always believing in me. The place you hold in my heart will never be filled - it will always be yours.

Thompson Family: I am sorry to hear of Greg's passing. I met Greg back in the early 80s and we spent a lot of time together back then. I remember spending time at the property at Carrying Place and spending time on the water there and then being soaked as I sat on the dock while Greg was out on his seadoo he came close to the dock and sprayed me with water, he laughed, initially I was upset but then he came on to the dock and eventually all I could do was laugh as I stood there looking like a drowned rat. I lost touch with him in the late '90s and I have regretted that happening. He was a ray of sunshine and always someone I could count on for advice and comic relief. I have thought of him often but I didn't have any luck finding him. One thing that comes to mind from back in the day Greg and I often joked that if we weren't married by the time we were 65 we would marry each other. So many fond memories of a wonderful friend. I am sorry to say I am unable to make the service, but I will be thinking of you all. Rest in peace Greg you are loved and missed.

Hi Thompson Family

I heard today of Greg's passing through Jack Burton today ( November 8TH )
I have fond memories of Greg starttng in the High School years and our early 20's.
We had lost contact for numerous years.
He came to the farm one day on a whim and we reconnected again.
So we had chances to catch up .
My son had an accident with his car and damaged the front end.
Avoiding the insurance route we had Greg carefully work his magic and corrected the damages.
In 2or 3 weks time we had the car returned and Aidan drove it for a number of more years.
We had lost contact in the last few years , and I have wonderd how he was .
Sorry to hear of your loss.
I remeber the Bolton days and your family was always nice to me.
I remeber you Maxine, Julie and Donna and also seeing Doug a few times as well.
Thinking of you at this time

Hey Greg

What’s going on?
Checking out a lil early don’t you think?
I’m not done hanging out with ya.
Well, I guess it’s like they say, “good things don’t last forever.”
Our friendship was a good thing.
I valued and appreciated your companionship Greg.
I’m going to miss your occasional big hugs and better yet, Your big outbursts of laughter.

I’ve been doing a lot of reminiscing since I got the news that you had moved on, especially from around the time we first met 18 years ago.
A lot of things happened on that job we started on together that ignited our friendship.
And talk about big guffaws,
I was recalling that day when I played a prank on Doug and you literally, almost fell over in your chair laughing.

I gotta tell this story.

You see, there was this other guy on this job that Greg and myself befriended because, you guessed it?
He was also an avid sledder. His name was Doug.
Shortly after we started working together, Doug was noticing what I brought in for lunch everyday and ya it was good stuff.
My wife, at the time, was a great cook! And I always brought in leftovers.
He was laying out the compliments thick and every morning curious to know what I was having for lunch that day.
Then Doug starts to go on about how good of a cook his wife was.
I dunno, maybe he was the jealous sort you know.
I started to feel like this was some kind of a competition now.
I didn’t mean to attract any attention.
I wasn’t looking for accolades.
I just happened to bring good lunches, I like to eat well lol
Anyways, I go home one day and tell my wife what’s been going on,
and said I need to bring in a really good lunch and set up my dining area real nice to try shut this guy up lol.
So, the next day, I brought in something really elegant and couldn’t wait to present the surprise for Doug.
And I couldn’t have picked a better day to do it.
This particular morning, Doug had brought in some nachos that his wife had made. He had been boasting about them the day before.
At morning break he was walking around the lunch tables, asking everyone to try his nachos.
He offered some to me and eagerly awaited my approval.
Now I don’t know about you guys but I just thought of nachos as a snack food. Nothing compared to the exquisite example of cuisine I was going to unveil at lunch time lol.
By the end of break time, Doug was beaming at the opportunity he had to let everyone sample the food his wife makes for him.
12 noon rolls around, my lunch is in the nuker and Doug comes strolling over to the tables to sit down for lunch.
He starts already with, “I wonder what Kev has for lunch today?’
then starts going on about his nachos again.
I’m thinking this is perfect, he’s helping to set himself up.
The nuker dings, I pull my dish out and proceed to my seat. Greg’s sitting right across from me, and I haven’t told him a thing.
I start by pulling out a nice red fabric placemat and laying it down in front of me. Then I furnish the mat with a porcelain plate, metal cutlery and a wine glass
( just filled with water).
Doug notices and starts to laugh, saying oh my God, what’s this?
Greg starts to laugh.
I don’t look up or say a thing.
Then I transfer the meal from the container to my plate.
You know those cute little lamb chops with the little thin bone sticking out, roasted potatoes and asparagus.
Others are noticing and laughing, Doug’s laughing harder and Greg’s rocking in his chair laughing harder now as well.
Then the clincher.
I pull out a nice fabric napkin, matching the placemat, and tuck It into the top of my shirt and lastly, I pull out a candle, light it up and set it in front of my plate!
without looking up and not a hint of a smile I cut into that lil lamb chop and make like there’s nothing going on here, just having my lunch.
Everyone is busting a gut now and Greg laughing so hard came so close to falling right over backwards in his chair,
Save for the guy beside him grabbing his chair and stopping it from going right over lol.

Hey! Greg appreciates my humour.

It was November when I met Greg on this job and I was looking to get a new sled. Greg was trying to persuade me to get a Polaris but didn’t succeed.
I had been riding Arctic Cats forever.

He did however, convert me from a Chevy guy to a Ford truck driver the following spring though lol

Gees, I laughed so hard on our way home from sledding one evening.
Greg was in front of me with this little Ford Ranger, pulling a double enclosed trailer with two sled in it,
around this ramp leading on to the 400 HWY.
I was behind him worried that he would take so long to get up to highway speed that I would have
A hard time merging into the fast traffic on the 400.
Heck, as soon as he got to the end of the bend on the ramp he took off like a rocket!!!
It was hilarious!!
When we got back to his place I asked him what work he had done to the truck and he just laughed.
Proud of his lil creation.
Ya, we had a lot of fun together on that job and the three of us sledded together on several occasions that season.
Spring time soon arrived and Greg was anxious to take his Mustang out.
He had been working on it over the winter and wanted to enjoy the fruits of his labour.
Here comes an adventure that was kind of a bummer experience for Greg but at the same time was pretty funny.

I gotta tell you this one, I’m sure Greg won’t mind.

Greg calls me up one day and asks me if I want to go to Cayuga Speedway with him.
Says he has a friend Mark, with a modified ’73 Duster, I think it was,
and once in awhile they run their cars down the strip.
I responded sure! Let’s go.
The drive down there was pretty uneventful for the most part. Man, we were so close.
We were only about 10 minutes away from Cayuga...
So, we’re driving down this country road, nothing but farm fields, and Greg says I wonder what happened to Mark, he’s not behind us.

He decides to pull over to the side of the road, about 50 feet from an up coming Intersection with a stop sign.
We weren’t sitting there long before Greg says, here he comes. Mark pulls up beside us and Greg asks him where he was.
He tells Greg a cop got up behind him so he was taking it easy. He says I think he’s still behind me, and pulls away.
Greg says, oh ya, here he comes.
So we’re sitting there and the cop drives past us slowly, stops at the stop sign and lingers there for a bit,
then continues straight through the intersection.
Greg pulls out on to the road, and hangs a left at the intersection. All looks well.
The cop went straight we turn left.
And we’re almost there.
So we’re driving down this road, all of a sudden I see this cop car, lights flashing, coming flying down this concession road to my right.
There’s an intersection coming up and It looks like he’s going to get there about the same time as us.
I say to Greg, do you think that’s the same cop?
We turned left at the last intersection and he went through, but it would make sense that he could have circled around.
Greg didn’t answer.
He looked a lil nervous.
So we got through the intersection before the cop got there. Now I’m wondering if he’s gunna turn and come up behind us.
A few seconds later Greg says, here he comes . He’s got his lights on, I better pull over. Silence.
The cop pulls up behind us.
He sits there in his car for a bit.
I’m wondering why he’s pulling us over?
Then he gets out of his car and comes to Greg’s door.

Now, keep in mind, I haven’t known Greg for that long at this point in time, just a few months.

And he looks pissed off!

I was like, Who is this Greg guy!?
Ya, now I’m a lil nervous, what the...

Gregs nervous but answers the cop very calmly, and matter of factly,
’No. It’s not a stolen car, It’s my car.”
The cop says, well they’re not your plates, they’re not registered to this car. Greg responds, No. They’re my plates and It’s my car.
The cop asks, where did you get the sticker for the plate!?
Greg responds very calmly and like it’s no big deal.
The sticker is from my snowmobile trailer.
The cop just loses it and yells at Greg,
“They’re from your what!!?”
Greg repeats, they’re from my trailer.

The cop shakes his head and asks for Greg’s license, ownership and insurance And goes back to his car.
I’m like Greg, what’s going on man?
He tells me that he can’t renew the sticker on his plate because he can’t pass emissions.
Aye Yai Yai lol

The cop returns to Gregs window and gives him his stuff back, plus an assortment of tickets and tells him they’re not just fines and that he would have to come back to Cayuga and go to court! :(
I’m thinking what a drag.

Then the cop asks Greg, “where’s your wipers?”
Greg answers, “in the trunk.”
The cop says, put them on and returns to his car.
Ya, he got a ticket for that too.

I had to ask.
Greg, why are your wipers in the trunk!? Lol
He says, less drag.
Well of course, right.
I’m thinking he’s probably gunna just want to go home now but nope.
He looks at me, smiles and says, I can’t believe he noticed the wipers weren’t on. And we continued on our way.

As the years went past I learned that’s just the way Greg was... If he wanted to do something, he just did it!

I’m going to miss hanging out in the garage while you worked on something Greg. Conversing while learning a thing or two here and there.
Greg was a wealth of information regarding the mechanics of a vehicle.
I learned a lot, just hanging out. It made me a better shady tree mechanic.
And I will be passing along what you taught me to my son when he gets a lil older Greg.
Just a lil something passed on from Greg.

And you know, Greg didn’t just work on his own stuff.
Quite often I would drop in and he would be working on someone else’s car or sled.
He just loved to fix things and make them run so well.
He was very meticulous and really took pride in his work.
I would think, here is someone getting an awesome repair done on their vehicle and probably
doesn’t even realize how good of a job they were getting done, at such a good rate.
Greg never asked for much for the repairs he did.

Hey wait a minute!
Lord, please don’t tell me you called for Greg too early because you needed something fixed and you wanted done really well, at a reasonable rate!! lol

Quite often, over the years, someone would be discussing a problem with their vehicle and
I could offer some valid advice, just from learning what I did, hanging out with Greg.

Greg had an affinity for anything that burned gas. Snowmobiles, jet skis, atv’s, trucks and of course his Mustang.
He was the king of modifications.
Anything he bought, new or used, he wasted no time getting it apart and re-engineering It.
I remember getting a new sled and Greg had me drilling little holes all over the skid frame
and installing grease fittings.

And heck, he didn’t always buy new wheel bearings, he pulled the seals off and repacked them!
Rebuilt clutches, installed exhaust temp gauges so he could lean out the fuel mixture to almost melting down,
to get the best fuel efficiency.
You see, he needs the best fuel economy he could get because he would put 5000 miles a season
on a sled whether we had snow or not!
I’m not kidding! lol

And of course, there was that Ford truck he swayed me to purchase. It needed some modification! lol
Headers, performance ignition coils, performance exhaust and a tranny shift kit. Oh, and don’t forget the Amsoil!.
I’ve replaced every fluid on all my vehicles with that golden nectar. Greg sweared by it.

He was always tinkering with that Mustang.
The first time he took me for a ride in it I nearly pooped my pants.
He was living in Holland landing at the time, on a road that didn’t see much traffic. So we’re just rolling down the road nice and easy and the car sounds great.
We get to the bottom of the street, and he turns into a monster! Lol
He puts his foot into it goin’ around the corner and ya, we’re drifting sideways. He’s shifting through the gears hard and every time I’m getting sucked back into the seat.
Second gear, third gear, fourth gear!
All the way down the road sideways and spinning tires.
It was both exhilarating and scary as hell!
I remember thinking, I hope this guy knows what he’s doing!?
When he let off the accelerator he had a grin on his face from ear to ear,
then his big boisterous laugh.
He was like a lil kid with a new train set.
My God, I’ve never been in a car that pulled like that.
I mean I’ve drifted around the corner sideways lots of times In my own vehicles but that was in the winter on snow covered roads lol
not dry pavement.
Now the best part of this story was when I stopped into his place a couple weeks later.
I see the hood up and go over to have a look.
The whole top of the engine is removed and I thought the engine was blown.
I says Greg, what’s wrong with the car?
He says nothing, it’s alright.
Apparently, he just wanted to tweak something.

I’m like, really!?
I thought it was running just fine a couple weeks ago when I nearly pooped myself during the introduction cruise to Greg’s Stang!

Ya, there was a lot to learn and it was all in the back of Greg’s head.
I remember going to car shows, with all these cars from the sixties up.
We’d be walking around and Greg would know every vehicle there.
Some I never even heard of.
He would be giving a little narrative of the options that came with every car. Engine choices, transmission, gees he probably even knew what interior packages were offered!
He definitely knew the car industry well.
He certainly could have been a high end car consultant of some sort or mechanic.
Maybe he just enjoyed it as a hobby.

So, I guess we’ve established that Greg enjoyed all his toys emensely.
He had a lot of toys and they were all well used,
but there was more to Greg than just being fun to hang out with and driving or riding stuff around.
Whenever I went out sledding with Greg I noticed that he not only enjoyed it so much himself,
but he would check in with me all the time wanting to make certain that I was having a good time as well.
He wanted me to be enjoying it as much as himself.
While sledding he would stop once in a while and walk back to ask if everything’s alright and if I’m enjoying the ride,
or if there was anywhere I wanted to go.
He would ask if I wanted to find a place , well Tim Horton’s lol, I think that was my only choice, to stop for lunch or a coffee.
He was actually very considerate and accommodating.

A funny thing with Greg were those little quips he would utter like;
When you tell him some disappointing news, he would respond with,
“Dammit Jim!’
Now, I think I know where he got that from.
That’s what doctor ”Bones” McCoy would say to Captain James Kirk on Star Trek “Dammit Jim! I’m just a country Doctor, not a magician”

Was Greg A Treky!!? Lol
His sisters would know.
Family secret? Hahaha

Or another line was “you betcha!” he used that often.

I think my favourite, which he would usually say to me when I told him I was going to attempt to fix or modify something by myself was, he would tell me, “You go girl!” Lol

Lastly, I just want to touch on Greg’s fondness of cats.
When I met Greg he had two big white cats.
Cobra was one, I don’t recall the other.
I think it’s name also had something related to Mustangs, of course.
They were his buddies!
They followed him around everywhere, always trying to get up on his lap
when he sat down, looking to be petted.
One of these cats had a health issue, maybe diabetes?
Greg had to give it a needle everyday.
I thought that was so caring and loyal.

Soon after another little cat came around.
Daisy her name was, cute lil white cat, deaf but got around just fine.
Now, a while after that Greg took in this stray.
I think that was the one that had kittens.
So, now we have a bajillion cats running around.

When I pulled into the driveway, they looked like a bunch of chickens running around the yard.
As they were getting older, you know the age that you should start giving them away,
I noticed that the herd wasn’t thinning.
I said to Greg, Hey.
You gotta start giving away these kittens, if they get any bigger nobody will want them.
Greg looked at me and
He didn’t wanna get rid of any of them.
He wanted to keep them all!

Greg was a big ol’ teddy bear.
Kind, thoughtful, so much fun to hang around with.
I think his life was cut a lil short but he certainly lived a full life. He kept himself busy doing the things he liked to do.
So admirable to witness someone living a life with great passions.

Greg, you were a great friend to me.
I am sincerely going to miss your company.
God Bless you and your family.
