    I just wanted to say that Dr. Asa Green was a wonderful man who loved Livingston University/UWA and it's students. I met him for the 1st time at Whitaker's 7-11 where he became a regular customer. He always took the time to carry on a conversation and ask how everyone was doing. He will be missed by everyone who knew him, but Heaven has gained another angel and he will continue to watch over UWA.
