Mrs. Greene was one of the kindest people I have ever met. I will always remember her from Meadowbrook Rd days where we all grew up. A genuine, kind, warm person, friendly to all, great sense of humor, I will always remember her tolerating our (very) loud rock band practicing in the living room.

RIP Davis, you were (and still are) one of a kind.
