RIP and Thank You to Greg CheekAug 1st, 2012 | By admin | Category: Pretrial Detention
I knew Gregory from 2002 to 2003. I was 33 at the time. I was depressed and on drugs. He helped me clean up and he was a true friend. There was not a mean bone in his body. Because of him I stopped doing drugs, saw a counselor, and joined the Army. I did two tours in Iraq. I worked out really hard, ran three full marathons, became a Sergeant in the Army, counseled soldiers on drug abuse, and met a wonderful man that I married. I remember visiting him at his parents home after I joined the Army. He was watching videos of himself surfing. It was cool.
Now, I am a senior at Cal State, studying social work. I am going to work with teenagers that have mental issues. Plus, me and my husband are adopting two teenage boys. We have grown children of our own. It is because of Gregory that I changed. I deal with my bi polar illness in the right way. I am so sorry that his parents, wife, daughter, and friends are going through this loss. Thank you, Gregory. You made a huge impact on my life. I hope I can pay my respects by doing some good deeds in your name buddy. Miss and love ya!
