We are sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Greene. We will always remember the visits and caretaking each day when he would stop by our mother and grandmothers houses to check on them on Dees Road in Lakeland. Mr. Greene was a special kind gentleman who always had time to converse with you and enjoy the dawn of another day. He was a special person. Lois you had a wonderful husband. He will be missed.

We have cherished the many years of friendship with you and Howard. We'll miss Howard's cheerful greeting and news of the neighborhood at the church door and his comforting pat on the shoulder when I needed it. You both will be missed greatly at our family/holiday dinners. Jeff and Clair ask about you frequently. Our prayers are with you always, Paul and Ann

"We do not mourn as those who have no hope" I am so grateful for the years we had with you all here in Lakeland at BPC. Me Greene was such a quiet, friendly man and it was an honor to call him friend. His quiet testimony of God's grace was evident in his life. He will be missed! Our prayers are with you, Lois, and your family. Much love to you my friend!
