    So sad to hear. I also am just catching the news of his passing. Helped a lot on my show questions. May he rest in peace. From what I can gather, he had 5,108 posts! Unreal...

    I remember being new to this board and calling him Gregario by mistake. He corrected me with humor and class that I will never forgot. I will miss him.

    RIP Greg

    I have been away from the board for awhile and am so sad to hear about this. He was so helpful when we went to Mamma Mia years ago. After I saw it we both shared a great affection for the actress who played Rosie. He will be greatly missed. He possessed such a wealth of knowledge about Vegas entertainment.

    Jeez...it has been a long time since I checked into the board. So sorry to hear of his passing. He gave me (and many others) a lot of good advice. RIP.

    I'm sad...

    Likewise been away for awhile.

    It was on his advice that I tried out the Rio. Both the wife and I enjoyed two stays there. I had hoped that at some point our visits would line up and we could meet up and get a drink.

    I don't think I ever saw any post of his that was not helpful and always had a gentle humor. I'll miss him.

    You know the very cool thing though is still today, I don't look thru shows in Vegas w/o thinking of Greg and all his spot on advice and timeless hours spent on this board helping others.

    We should all be so lucky to have a legacy that lives on where people never forget you, long after your gone.

    RIP buddy....:nworthy:

    we went with his advice when we saw love.

    fantastic seats that we never would have thought to pick on our own.

    I can't believe this, just finding this out now. I was on another board tonight coincidentally printing out something he wrote to me when I was inquiring about Mystere. How sad. RIP, sir.

    I have been away from the board awhile and was shocked and saddened to hear this. Like many others have stated, GregRio helped me immensely with his seating tips and advice on which shows to see.

    I came back to the board because I just found out last minute I can make a weekend trip to Vegas, and wanted to see LOVE and check on Greg's advice for the show. I think I just might have to add a second show to see in his honor.

    RIP, GregRio, you will definitely be missed.

    The man was truly selfless and an influential contributor to this forum. His insights will be missed.
