Greg Thier

Ok, so for anyone needing more details about Greg Thier, uncle to Chuck, and father to Michelle (Meesh) Boston...

Greg Thier's funeral will be Thursday at 3 PM at Marshall Ford Fellowship. He will be cremated, so there will be no graveside service.

In case you didn't know, Greg first had some diabetic complications that caused him to check in at the hospital about 2 weeks ago. While he was there undergoing tests, he had a heart attack. He was later given a blood transfusion, and then had some small strokes. He had been making good progress recovering from those for a week, and Saturday was even able to say "uh huh" and "nuh uh" and shake his head to show he understood and could respond. Sunday morning he had another stroke which pretty much took him instantly. He had just been telling us (before the strokes) that he was looking forward to his first grandbaby (Michelle is due in May 07) and retirement in a little over a year. So this was somewhat unexpected.

Michelle is holding up very well...I don't think things will really sink in for awhile. She's doing an excellent job of trying to sort through all the estate stuff. Please pray that God would help us get all the affairs in order.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to be made to Greg's favorite charity, The Make A Wish Foundation. If you were wanting to send flowers anyways, you could send them to the church (Marshall Ford Fellowship, 5000 Marshall Ford Rd, Austin tx 78732).

Even if you didn't know Greg, but know Meesh, please come if you can to the funeral to be there to support her.

I greatly appreciate all your love and concern!
With a heavy heart,
