This is one of my favorite photos of us. It brings back such fond memories. It was @itsmikehill birthday & we invited a few of our friends over for a last minute gathering at Lake Bailey. Out of nowhere, Gregg asked to pray for Mike and I. For our love & our relationship. He was first person to actually pray for us as a couple. It was so heartfelt and so beautiful. We were all so touched and blown away by his words. I think Mike & I both teared up. There was sincerely a ministry inside of him. He truly blessed us that night & we will never forget it. That was one of the many things that Gregg did to bless my life. I am so saddened to hear of his passing. My heart and prayers go out to @neneleakes and her family. Gregg was a good man, so kind & so loving. I will miss him, and will always honor his memory with love.????????❤️????????

I’m so thankful I had the pleasure of knowing @greggleakes. He was wonderfully wise, hilariously humorous, courageous and compassionate. A great husband, dad and friend. Death always has some measure of sadness but a man who leaves a legacy never truly dies because his spirit, his words, and his deeds are etched in the hearts of everyone who was fortunate enough to know him. Tonight I find solace in the moments I listened, laughed and learned from Gregg. #RIP#OG#Greggleakes
