    I remember Howard as a Sunday School teacher at First Baptist Church Dothan. He was always upbeat, friendly and well-prepared to teach. I was shocked and saddened to read of his passing and extend my sympathy to his family.

    Our deepest sympathy to your entire family and especially to you Sue. We were next door neighbors for around 30 years and sincerely missed your presence when you departed Dothan. Howard was a kind and caring man, may God bring solace and peace to your family.

    I spent many years working as a young narcotics officer in Dothan and Blake was my partner. I enjoyed many meals that Ms. Sue prepared. Blake left me to attend Jones Law school and I eventually progressed to Chief of Police in Dothan but I stayed in touch with Howard after my best partner Blake went to meet our Lord. Howard told me many times that he was so proud of me. Howard and Blake inspired me to attend Jones Law school and I graduated, retired as chief and haw now practiced law since 2005.

    Howad Green was the most honorable man I have ever known and I am a better man for having been close to his family.

    Sue and Lisa,
    Ansley and I have so many wonderful memories of your family. Ansley’s memories date back to Kiwanis days and all the telethons, bake sales, and work with the DARC. Sue, you had such a positive impact on my chiuldren’s love for reading. We now have twin grandsons and we are really into books! Lisa, I can say you were one of my favorite students during my Girard teaching days. Howard lived a full life of service to others. May you find peace and comfort as you face the days ahead.
    With much love,
    Ansley and Charlotte
