“ I grew up on Sunset Hill, so we were practically neighbors. I'm the daughter of Melvyn and Margaret Greene. Tete sold me my first pair of pierced ear rings and my wedding china. I'm sorry to see that he has passed away. My thoughts and prayers are with you.”

“We did not have the opportunity to know Mr. Hogue, but we were lucky to hear many stories about Leland and his son Dave as we are neighbors in Omaha. April and I share in our sorrow for losing a good friend's father, veteran and good man.”
