    Carol, Kip, Jr., I’m so sorry on Greg’s passing. I can remember his love for fishing, the Cubs, and golf. He is no longer in pain. He is with Gertie and Merle watching over you. I’m sorry I cannot come the the showing Saturday because I have to work. You will be on my mind and in my prayers. Jr. (Buckfeet) you were a good brother to Greg and he knew that. God Bless and take care.

      Jr., Kip, and family so sorry to hear of Greg’s passing. Such a fun loving man. I have many fond memories of Greg. He gave me my first ride in a corvette probably a little to fast knowing Greg. I’m sure that Gertie and Merle are waiting at the Pearly Gate with open arms. What a party in heaven they will have. Love and God Bless each and everyone of you.

    To the Pollard family.. sorry for your loss of Greg..especially to his son, Kip.

    Kip, Carol, Pollard/Guffy Families,
    I was very saddened to hear that Greg had passed away. Myself and a lot of other Jackson Cardinals went to school with Greg from day one of first grade until graduation in May of 69 from Clinton Prairie. I always liked Greg, he was always friendly and didn’t know a stranger. One of my fondest memories was the summer Greg, Vic and I took drivers ed together. Greg and Vic being from farm families drove well…me…not so much. I took a lot of ribbing that summer from Greg, Vic and Mr. Paige. I have thought back often over the years about that summer and our driving adventures. I probably hadn’t seen Greg but a handful of times since graduation. However, when I did see him out and about he always spoke and had that ornery mischievous grin …..like he just got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Thank you for sharing the picture video….it was fun… yet a bit bittersweet peeking inside of your lives with Greg. I remember those pictures of Greg and Vic together. I can’t make Greg’s calling I will be out of town. Please know, you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Greg was a great guy, and I know you will miss him, but think of him and smile. Take care of yourselves.
    Sincerely,
    Jenny (Camp) Harris

    Greg was a kind man, and a caring father. He had so much to be proud of in how he provided for his family, and for the incredible son he raised. He will be deeply missed, and remembered fondly for his positive attitude and the smile that was always on his face. My thoughts are with the Pollard family. My love and sympathy are with you all.

  21. Eric L. Mundell December 5, 2015 at 4:48 am

    Sending all best thoughts to Greg and his family from the extended Mundell families (cousins) with warm memories of the two families and of Greg, It was just too soon. Hope his family can find comfort and support in those around them. Take care.
