I Will Be Glad and Rejoice in Your Love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul… Psalm 31:7
The 4th child born to parents James and Retha Mae Ingram on April 27, 1951 was given the name Gregory James Ingram (Greg). He came from humble beginnings whose core foundation was the Word of God.
As a young boy he took pride in doing and being the best he could be, accepting his humble beginnings as a steppingstone to the life he ultimately led; a proud man with a generous heart, and sense of humor that was stage worthy.
A quiet observer his inherent qualities, gentle, loving, and caring, were known only by those closest to him, especially his "Patricia" who he often introduced as "My Bride", and shared 43 years of marriage. As a sign of his humor all one had to ask was "what is the formula to be your age and married 43 years?", he would answer with a smile "I do what I'm told cause I'm told what to do." Greg leaves this life with many memories emblazoned on the hearts and minds of so many who knew him, but especially those closest to him who shared in his life. Preceded in death by his infant son Joseph Gregory, parents James and Retha Mae Ingram, sister Winnie Mays, and brother Jeff Ingram, he is survived by his wife Patricia, brother Thomas Ingram, sisters Gladys Foster (James) and Brenda Cary, brother-in law Herschel Ramsey, sister-in-law Rhonda Wagner, and a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and extended family, but it is his "Patricia, My Bride" who holds the memories most cherished...
Our morning cups of coffee, conversations and making plans for the day
Our afternoons filled with go here, go there, and walks along the way
Our evening meals when “Chef Gregorio” beamed with pride, to see the smile and chipmunk cheeks on the face of “My Bride”
Our quiet nights watching movies or T.V., snuggled close under the throw given you from me
Our plans for our next travel ventures both far and near, to create new memories to discuss and hold dear.
A lifetime of memories carefully tucked away, your Smile, your Voice, your Touch and Precious Ways
Our life is under lock and key, in the chambers of my heart is where You Will Always Be
God has called and carried you away, Peace be Yours for eternal days.
To Those I Love
“To reach the heights of Blessedness, we must be content to pass through the fields of struggle” …
Sorry I had to leave in such a hurry,
But I’m resting now so please don’t worry
I didn’t have time to say good-bye,
Try to understand and please don’t cry
Remember I love you, remember I care
I’ll always be with you,
Though you won’t see me there
So, carry on as you have before
Until we meet on Heaven’s beautiful shore. ~ Greg Ingram~
God Bless You for your lovely card,
your kindest words
Your thoughts and prayers,
the memories you shared
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
we Thank You so much, whatever the part.
Patricia and Family
