Loss of a gamer friend


Recommended Posts

There is never really a correct forum to post this in.. But, it needs to be posted.


A friend of mine, Gregory Greer, passed away yesterday.


Local to the DFW crowd, for the last few years Greg was part of my dice rolling group that got together every couple of weeks. Very boisterous, loud, and overly competitive in game, fairly quiet and reserved away from the dice. I only played Warlord with him, but I know he was also involved in a few different groups. I am not going to pretend to be know everything about him as I only saw him a couple times a month in a good month, but obviously doing that for a couple years, I do feel like I got to know him fairly well. I shared some good times and some tough times with him over the years, and I will miss him.



He was not really a forums guy, or at least not a poster, I don't even know if he had a forum handle, so there will be plenty here that might not know him.. But, there will be plenty here that have come to one or two of the ReaperCons and met him and know that he is the type that leaves an impression that wont soon forget him (referring to his loud and boisterous in game personality). So, I figured to share the info in case.


Good bye my friend.

There is an empty chair,
at the table this day.
A hallowed place where,
a friend once played.
The roll of his dice,
my ears long to hear.
Or perhaps it would suffice,
if he should suddenly appear.
With character sheet in hand,
and a bag of Cheeze-doodles to share.
All his friends would stand,
as he sat in the empty chair.
I hear his voice a-callin’,
and it ties my heart in a knot.
For he cries, “Though a comrade has fallen,
You must play for those who cannot.”
We conquered worlds on the run,
he and I in the name of fun.
And as others may come and go,
I make both both friend and foe.
But what I long for most,
is our past now long a ghost.
