All of your comments have been so precious. Thank you so much for the encouragement. Here is a link to my grandfather's obituary. It has a guest book in case anyone wants to leave a message for his sweet wife Madelyn. The text is below.
Major Albert “Al” Green, a soldier and a servant, was taken home to be with His Savior on April 21, 2007, in Sugar Land, TX. He died peacefully with loved ones by his side. Born on September 13, 1920, in Arkadelphia, AR, he enlisted in the Army at age 21 and served four tours before retiring. A decorated officer, he fought in World War II and Korea and helped liberate a German concentration camp. He loved traveling, gardening, and teaching Sunday School, but his passion was feeding the homeless. He is preceded in death by his late wife, Aletha Green, with whom he shared 58 years. He is survived by their children – Sandra Finley, Wayne Green, Gay Tuttle, Elizabeth Moore, and Tony Green; his brother Roy Green, and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. He is survived by Madelyn Green, his wife of eight wonderful years, and her five children who he deeply loved.
