Celebrating the life of Gregorio Michael Lanoza
Thank you for signing Gregorio Michael Lanoza's Guestbook
Its been 34 days, I miss you so much... Its so hard going to mimis house and you arent in your den. I miss our memories from myrtle beach, bojangles runs, going to church, when me and kaden would stay with you everyday after school and if we were good we got super scoop ice cream on fridays. I miss seeing you everyday 2-3 times a day. Its hard, seeing someone 3 times a day to not seeing them at all. I hope you know everything I do is for you, I have soccer tryouts tomorrow, I know you will be with me and wishing me luck. Makayla made the White Oak soccer team, she knows you are proud. It snowed again on wednesday, I know how much you loved the snow. I love you and I miss you so much, no words could ever explain. Its so hard to write this right now, you always hold a special place in my heart nobody else could fill. I hope you have fun playing golf up there... tell everyone I miss them for me! And you and Uncle Jerry stop fighting over your golf games. I promise to keep mimi safe. Anyways, I love you grandad, hope I can see you again.

It still does not seem right. I know he has been sick for a while but I feel like it's a nightmare that I need to wake up from. Uncle Greg and I had a silly/stoopid relationship. I loved all the memories that my family had at the family reunions along with our long weekend trips once a year for almost the last 10 years. Aunt Carla, John, Marcie, Crystal, and family, your in our thoughts and prayers. We are here if you need anything. We love you so much.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many memories from our trips to North Carolina... Reunions, Emerald Isle and golfing with him and my Dad. They were so competitive and let’s face it they both cheated on the golf course but it was fun to watch.
We will miss him but know he is in a better place free from pain and with his parents and brothers. Sending love and prayers to you all.

So sorry for your loss. Isaiah 25:8 says that soon death will be no more! Until then, may you find comfort in the promises from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

We have many great memories of family vacations to North Carolina. Uncle Greg held a special place in our hearts as he was so much like Our Dad. We know the pain you are going through and pray God’s peace to help you in your time of sorrow. We know that he is at peace now. No more pain or suffering. He is joyfully reunited with his beloved parents and brothers. He was very blessed to have such a beautiful and loving family right by his side as he transitioned into heaven. We love you and are keeping you in our prayers.

We have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Greg surrounded by his family in love for every reunion and vacation to North Carolina. It is never easy to say goodbye, but we know he is in a better place with no pain surrounded by his friends and family above and that he is watching down on all of us. He loved his family above all else and we know he is gathered in the stars with his mother, father and brothers. To all the Lanoza’s in North Carolina, I hope you find peace in this hard time and know that we love you and are hear for you. The Lanoza family may be large but we do not put labels on who we are to each other - we’re all family and we love you and are here for you during this difficult time 💙
