MISS GRETA,
I AM DIRELY SORRY TO HEAR THAT YOU LEFT US...
ON A FUTURE ROAD TRIP THAT WOULD'VE TOOK ME NEAR QUINCY; I WAS SO LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AGAIN. I THINK THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU, YOU WERE MAYBE 14 (?) YEARS OLD.

I BECAME ACQUAINTED WITH YOU THROUGH YOUR FATHER "SONNY", AND HIS WIFE SHERRI WILLIAMS. SONNY THOUGHT THE WORLD OF YOU, GRETA- AND I HAD THE UTMOST RESPECT AND ADMIRATION FOR HIM. JUST RECENTLY, I STARTED PERFORMING A SONG THAT SONNY HAD WRITTEN... "1932". FOLKS FROM ALL OVER JUST LOVE IT. I INCLUDED IT ON MY LAST CD...

REST IN HEAVENLY PEACE, SWEET ANGEL GRETA.

LOVE,
JEREMIAH SUNDOWN
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

To the family and friends of Greta, please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. I worked with Greta several years ago, here in Nashville, Tennessee. We shared many laughs and good times. After she left Nashville, we kept in touch on Facebook, so I feel our friendship continued. She was always kind, considerate and a joy to be around. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of Greta's passing. She was an amazing person. We worked together over 20 years ago at the courthouse. She was one of my very best friends and I will always remember her. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
