The Cutest Story Ever Told! Maybe it will Inspire some :)
When I was 11 years old, I did my first trip outside of Brazil. My mom took me to see Disney World in Florida!
I was a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, and I went crazy over that huge stuffed Pooh bear I saw at the Disney Store.
But my mother told me that that bear was too expensive for her but she could give me the small one. I was happy about it anyway, and she put the little one in our shopping bag.
We were wondering around the beautiful store and ended up loosing each other. She was in panic running around the crowded store trying to find me. Finally, she found me and got so happy that she took me straight to the bear section and bought me the big Pooh bear!
I was so happy! I tried to tell her that it was too expensive, but she said that she was happy to find me and wanted to give me that bear.
At the checkout we were both so happy and bubbly! Then I noticed the name of the cashier written on his shirt. It was GREG. I told him: "This is the prettiest name! I've never heard that name before, we don't have this name in Brazil, but I will name my bear Greg!"
My mom might even be able to find the picture we took of the cashier called Greg.
And since then, I had my stuffed animal Greg, he was my companion in all my trips until young adult. My mom only gave it away to needed children after I got married.
Coincidence or not, I came to Reno in 2003 and met my Greg. Maybe my soul already knew at 11 years old that this would be the name of my future husband.

Get to know your bug guy!
One thing that not too many people know about Greg is that, besides running Statewide for almost 20 years, he is also a great pilot. In fact, there are many pilots in the family.
Flying has always been Greg's passion, though he doesn't do this very often anymore. He has been flying small planes, hang-glides and ultra-lights for over 30 years. He has also done acrobatics in his old airplane.
