Shelda and Family,
My family and I (Don, Sandra (wife) Caleb, Austin, Ginger) are eternally grateful to have known you and Hal for many years. You two were servants of the Lord always providing to those in need. Hal provided me the spiritual meat via the sermons in church by his wonderful command of sign language....he signed faster than any other interpreter I have known in my 40 years in church. He always was ready with the blue interpreter smock jacket and never backed out of long...

To Mrs. Green and family, What an honor it was for us to know such a beautiful, humble man. A true man of God in every sense of the word. His example of service was known all over the U.S. because that is the kind of person we came to know. He shared his talents and skills with us in interpreting for the deaf and we all esteemed him highly. he will be greatly, missed. God keep you all and may you continue in this life with such fond memories of our dear friend Mr. Hal Green.

Dear Green family,
What a privilege to have worked with Hal in a Special Education class at Hopkins Junior High. His calming presence was felt by both staff and students, and his gentle humor often calmed emotional storms. When Hal was there as a substitute, we knew our students would be loved and well cared for, and we would have a good day. We all loved to see Mr. Green come into our classroom, but especially the students. They looked to him like a second grandpa. Like a grandpa, he...

Shelda and family, you will be in our prayers.

What a friend Hal was. For me, there was always a helping hand, a generous smile, and an open door. Hal was family.

I posted this on Facebook:
Hal served God by serving others, many of whom were little children whose lives were broken by multiple hardships including grave disabilities. in so many case, in the home of Hal and Shelda Green, children who were never expected to thrive, did so. Hal spoke to and for people with hearing impairments as well. To all the children who...

Hal was a man that loved others and demonstrated his caring attitude everyday no matter where he was. He had a sense of humor and was easy to talk to...fond memories of him will not be forgotten.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
