To Almeda and family..... I am so sorry to hear of your husband's passing. I used to like seeing you two dance together at our school outings. You should have been on "Dancing With the Stars." You have my sincerest and deepest sympathy.

I have such exquisite memories of Donald and Almeda singing and playing the piano in our living room when I was growing up. When the Greene family came to town for the holidays or a summertime visit it was lovely and so much fun. When Donald married into our family, he became part of our team. When my parents died, he and Almeda and you all were such a comfort. Donald Greene was more than a cousin, he was our dear friend! We thank God for his life. May his soul Rest In Peace and May your faith in God give you comfort.
