Since Greg and his father maintained a close relationship (as much as possible), when Gregory Senior suggested one day that Greg and his brother Samuel come visit him and his new family in Atlanta, Greg was over the moon. Gregory Junior suggested this idea directly to his son, when the two spoke on the phone one day, without previous consultation with Greg’s mother.
Gregory was excited about the possibility of finally seeing his father, and so his mother allowed him to go. The arrangements were made, and with somewhat of a heavy heart, she said goodbye to her sons. The separation was hard for the kids as well, but they knew it was only temporary.
