Dear Nancy

I was saddened to hear about the passing of your son Greg.
He was such a wonderful colleague and great person to work with. I had known him for over five years when he joined the NIH to work in our lab. We had a very fruitful collaboration and I enjoyed greatly working with him and our weekly meetings where he made many quick witted remarks and jokes. He will be greatly missed by everyone who had known him. My sister (Hind Beydoun, also a co-author of his) and I would like to offer our deepest condolences to you and to the family. He will remain in our minds and hearts. Warmly, May.

I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Greg. He was a great guy and wonderful colleague. He will be dearly missed at NIH and everywhere else he had worked and studied. I had the honor to work directly with him and will never forget his great contributions. My sister (Hind Beydoun) and I are very sorry for your loss.

Dear Nancy,
We are so very sorry for your loss! Please know that we are praying for you as you begin the hard work of grieving, asking for God to give you peace and comfort... which I realize seems impossible at this point when your grief is so fresh. Wish I could be there to give you a mom-to-mom hug but I do share your sorrow from afar. Jim and I have such fond memories of Greg and James (and Bethany and Gretchin) having fun together... so silly and crazy in the best sense of the words! Your boy helped bring out the best in our boy during those high school days. I am not sure if Greg ever told you how they would come down to my Kindergarten room during study halls... for snacks but a
...lso to hang out with the little guys. The Kindergarten children loved those big boys! We have thought of Greg so many times over the last 20 or so years and wondered what he was up to...not surprised to read of all his accomplishments!

Lifting you in prayer and sending hugs all the way from Pennsylvania,

Arlene (and Jim, too)

Although I never knew him on a personal basis I know his mother and the wonderful relationship they shared. I send my deepest sympathy and am certain that Greg will be remembered for a long time for the work he did and the life he strived to accomplish. He will be greatly missed and May God bless and keep his family in his loving care. Another angel to watch over Nancy and family.

I’m so sad to hear of Greg’s passing. I worked with Greg at NIH and always looked forward to his witty jokes and care-free personality. He was such a great guy and will truly be missed.
