I extend to Gregg's family and friends my deepest sympathies and those of Our Lady of Grace parish in Noblesville. Gregg had been a parishioner here for about two years. Although he had not had time to become heavily involved, he did make an impact and will be remembered. Those of us who knew him were shocked to learn of his death, and we are praying for all of you, his family and loved ones.

Gep and I spent our college years together at Miami. We had countless adventures. Hanging out uptown, studying at the library, house parties, teaching me how to play golf. Every time I head to Miami another great memory or story comes to mind. I was hoping that we would be able to catch up and see each other this year at parents weekend since we both have boys that go there. Gregg will always have a special place in my heart. My condolences to all the Bernhold family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Gregg - You were my first early on that I don't remember ever not knowing you! Lots of pretty summer days playing outside, walking uptown to buy candy, building a rabbit trap using your 5 year old engineering expertise, riding those big metal tractors of yours around, and some good old-fashioned rock throwing!

My deepest condolences to your fine family. I know you will be missed by many, but I also know you have been welcomed into heaven by your mom's loving arms. Rest in peace friend.

Didn't know Gregg well, but great smile and upbeat guy. Came from a good family and our world darkens a little with his passing. Best wishes to all his friends and family.
