Mike and I rode many nights together in our cruiser with the Rock Island County Sheriffs Police. We were friends, college classmates, and neighbor's. We shared a get deal of our spare time together with our wives at ball games picnics, and vacations. We got separated and lost contact as many do. I spoke with Mike just six days ago and it seemed just like yesterday we were together with our wives as couples. Nothing can bring back lost time and now I know I've lost a good man who I can call a true friend. We will all miss Mike in our own way, some more than others. I take in favorable regard the time I spent with Mike in this world knowing I will meet him again in another. May the Lord have mercy on the Soul of Mike Green and open the doorway to eternity so he can rejoice in the presence of the Lord. Stephen & Carol Bond -- Ames IA
