I worked with Greg in Downtown Milwaukee, Greg was one of the most decent , people I ever knew. Your family is lucky to have him, for his short 50 years. May he rest in peace, and your family be able to heal.

The staff at Sabre Lanes wishes to pass along its condolences to the Lorenzen family. Karen, we remember you and Greg as a very special couple. We knew that if we saw one of you ... the other was close by.

Dear Karen & Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Greg was an extremely well liked person and you were lucky to have him as a husband and father/family member. I was blessed to have known him. I am unable to make the service, but please know you are all in my heart and prayers. Love Jane Gossett

We never had the opportunity to meet Greg, but have heard so much about him through his daughter Christina and her fiance Josh. He sounded like a wonderful man and father! Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. -Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Although I've only known Greg for a couple of years, I'm very grateful for the chance to have met him and gotten to know him. He had a special way of knowing how to always put a smile on your face ... there was never a dull moment when Greg was around! Since the first time I met him, he always went out of his way to be friendly and make people around him feel comfortable. Your pain and suffering is now over, Greg, and you can be "forever in Jamaica"!! I will sincerely miss you, and your "How You Doin" will forever be with me! Karen, Christy, and Brittany - Please try to remember that time and love will help make this terrible loss bearable. My heart is with all of you, now and always. Love, Linda

Karen - I knew Greg from work at We Energies and through family (my brother, Pete, is married to Greg's sister, Cheryl). I'm so sorry for your loss. I won't be able to make it to the service as a friend just died and her service is also on Saturday afternoon but my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God bless. Gretchen
Jackie Hynes left a message on March 10, 2010:
Karen, I was there with you when you met Greg. You fell in love with him the day you met him and were never apart from him. I know that you will always remember him for his smile, his smirk, his laugh and for what a great father and husband he was. He will be missed by all. We will continue to pray for you and the girls. You have truly been blessed having Greg. I can still remember that night you said repeatedly, "GREG! Get in the CAR!!!" We laughed so hard. I can still picture it. Look up to the one who can give you peace and you will find it. He's waiting for you like a loving father and friend. Greg too was a loving father and friend. He will be missed. Love, Jackie

Greg's ready smile for anyone - even for a goofy little kid from the neighborhood (me) - made him an instant favorite with everyone he met. My heart goes out to Karen and the girls... I will keep you all in my prayers. Greg's smile will live on in our hearts, it's what we all will always remember.
Vic and Gary Edwards left a message on March 9, 2010:
We are so glad we had the pleasure of meeting Greg. He and Karen have become a very important part of our daughter and son-in-laws lives. They will always have wonderful memories. Our thoughts are with your family now and in the future.

We are so sorry for your loss. He was the the funniest guy I have ever met and I always had such a good time when I was around him. I will always remember the first time he listened to my mp3 player were he pretty much sang to the entire resort "I love this bar". I am terribly sorry that we can't make it and will keep you in our prayers.

Greg was a wonderful guy and I was so happy he met and married Karen. They were the perfect match and brought out the best in each other. Doesn't seem that long ago we were drinking diet pepsi's at the four walls, shooting pool and playing gin rummy. Then, you had 2 beautiful daughters and years of fun! Karen, my heart goes out to you. Greg was a wonderful soul and you two were so good together. I know the shock and pain you feel right now is nearly unbearable but try to keep telling yourself how blessed you were to have him for the time you did and know that he will always be in your heart and will be watching over you and the girls until the time you meet up again. The love you shared will help you be strong when you need it most and help you to know that you will survive this. Although you may find it hard to smile at times, remember each time you do, Greg will be smiling back at you. Love always, Lori

Uncle Greg, You always lit up our family festivities with your jovial laugh and warm smile, and those memories will be with us always. We know you've gone to someplace better, but you will always be sorely missed and fondly remembered. You will forever be in our hearts and our minds.
Russ and Melanie Geise left a message on March 9, 2010:
Greg was seriously sarcastic, fiscally responsible, hilariously funny. Good with his wit, good with his hands. Loved his family more than himself. Loved fun almost as much as his family. We are going to truly miss that rascal!
Steve Morrison left a message on March 9, 2010:
Although the miles and years have seperated Greg and I the memories will always be in the present. His laugh still rings my ears. A few of Greg's grade and high school friends were fortunate enough to be able to visit Greg a few Saturdays back and seeing Greg being able to smile and laugh with us as we recounted "the good old days" will be what i will remember. Greg "Ren" as he was called will be missed knowing there is one less laugh out there. I know Greg has found peace and i am hoping that Karen, Christy, and Brittany may find it also. Steve "sometimes morry" Morrison

Chubs and Mary Coenen left a message on March 9, 2010:
Greg, as of right this minute you are probably sitting and telling the good Lord some crazy story of a man in a dumpster or somethin like bringing him a sprinkle cone to gain brownie points. You always brought laughter. We need to keep that part very much alive. Love you man. Karen, remember we love you so much. Our hearts and prayers are with you and the girls. God Bless and keep you.
