  • To the family and friends of Walt Greene. He will be truly missed by everyone who’s life he has touched. I know for me he was a friend, colleague and a brother in law enforcement. Walter helped me transition into the CSP Statewide Task Force which to this day I am proud to have been a part. It was an honor and a blessing that I was afforded the opportunity to know such a dedicated and all around good man. In Walter Greene Jr., my friend you will be greatly missed but not forgotten.

  • In this time of your loss,
    We lift you up in prayer,
    We pray that in your sorrow,
    You’ll find that God is there
    And though we can’t be with you,
    You’re in our thoughts each day,
    For we will always remember you
    When we kneel to pray.
