Gregory was buried on July 1, 2005 in the "Alter Garden" section of Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Portland Oregon.  Until very recently, this area was reserved exclusively for Catholic priests and bishops.   On the day of Gregory's burial, the Reverend Bishop Steiner announced that the priests will be in good company.

The area is lovely and is the site of the annual Memorial Day and other special services.

Gregory's Grave Marker

When Gregory was nine years old, we took a winter cross country ski trip into Yellowstone National Park.   Since that time, the buffalo has been Gregory's favorite animal.   This marker captures Greg's love of the outdoors and animals.  The clouds in the sky capture his desire to be able to fly above the earth, and the Latin Cross represents Gregory's love of God.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God - Matthew 5:8
