FROM GREG’S GIRLFRIEND:
Thank you for these beautiful pictures of my love Greg! I see it now for the first time. When I see these photo’s it feels like Greg is still alive….
He lived his dream and I respected that. Even though he was far away from me. But I knew he would always come back to me and his family. He was a person that had a good heart, would listen to you and give you advice. He always took the time to learn childeren some baseball or have a talk with them. To himself he was second place.
He didn’t wanted people to know who I was, cuz he felt that he needed to protect me from the media, his life. He always wanted me to do my own things here in the Netherlands. I know understand why… after this whole drama, I can take my time, knowing that he’s always with me, so I can give this all a place somewhere… But it’s gonna be a long road… A long hard painful road…
But I wanna thank the fans and many people in the USA that give (and still give) us love, hope & strenght! All the emails we received from ya’ll and the beautiful photo’s of Greg! I can’t thank ya’ll enough! I love you guys!
This is my first and last words about Greg. I felt that I needed to say this on this page, where the most beautiful pictures of Greg is. Cause these pictures they took my heart!
This is him, the real Greg, at his best …. His life, his dream.. His first love! He always gonna be a superstar!
He’s a true legend now! “My Underground King”
Love Always, M.
Greg Halman’s Girlfriend
From The Netherland”
It is always a tragedy when I life gets taken from us. Especially when it is someone young, with so much personality, character, talent and potential. Greg Halman was still so young, and had barely even begun his promising profession career as a major leager. I am always thankful for the opportunity to be on the field with great players, and I will always remember my time in the photo pit when Halman was on the field. The Seattle Mariners will be missing his smile and personality for years to come.
