It was at Holes for Heroes back in 2016 that Brad Carlson and me got to interview Greg Thomas, a man in Montgomery, MN who, when given a terminal diagnosis and mere weeks to live, decided to restore a crumbling country church.
His story was spellbinding – it was one of the most interesting interviews I’ve ever done. And it chronicled a quest that had gone on (if I recall correctly) for seven years, at that time.
Which isn’t bad for a guy who’d been given, as I recall, three months to live.
As we parted ways, I told him to come by next year and update us. He said he hoped he could – but he’d just gotten more bad news about his prognosis, and would be lucky to be around in months, rather than a full year.
He was finally right.

But then we all are, eventually.
Thanks for the amazing story, Greg, RIP.
