To the family, friends, and colleagues of Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene:

From the beginning of time after Cain killed his brother, Abel, there has been a need for law enforcement officers to protect the weak and to bring evildoers to justice. This work is necessary in a sinful world and is dangerous. In modern times, some five hundred and thirty-six law enforcement officers have sacrificed their lives to protect the citizens of the State of North Carolina. Today, we honor the sacrifice of Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene, of the Union County, North Carolina, Sheriff’s Office; who was killed in the line-of-duty on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, when a tractor trailer unit overturned onto his patrol vehicle, crushing him to death, on U.S. Route 74 at Sutherland Avenue in Union County, North Carolina.

“Lord God, we are grateful for the life of Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene. He died serving us. Help us never to forget. Help us celebrate the life of Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene and honor his sacrifice. Be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them your strength. Guide those who seek to take care of the family of this hero. May those empowered to do so, care for them with integrity. In commemorating the death of this hero, help those who mourn to remember that death is not the end. Death does not have the final say, but is simply the transition to the glorious life to come. They should look forward to that life to come with joy and thanksgiving.

As for the citizens of Union County, North Carolina, help them to faithfully equip their law enforcement officers with the best tools to protect their county. May their training be adequate to the task. Help the citizens of Union County, North Carolina, to remember to pay their law enforcement officers fairly and treat them with respect. Help the citizens of Union County, North Carolina, to obey the law and treat each other with dignity so as not to add to the burden of crime and pain to their county.

The time for mourning will soon pass. We have now remembered and celebrated the life lost in this great tragedy. As the family, friends, and colleagues of Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene go forward, they must celebrate the good things in their lives; and to celebrate life itself!

Finally, Lord God, we pray for the families, friends, and colleagues of all the law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line-of-duty and we thank you for their sacrifices. Bless the lives of their families, friends, and colleagues so they might find healing. Help their law enforcement organizations support the families of these fallen heroes. Even though their deaths might have been senseless, make something good come out of these situations so that their law enforcement organizations and the communities in which they lived and served might be stronger because of their lives and their deaths. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

Now, Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene, may the Lord bless you, and keep you: the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

In His Service,

You've given more to this country in your 54 years than many will give in 100. You are truly a hero and your death is a loss to all, though the loss your family is feeling cannot be matched. So long as they keep you in their hearts and minds, you will never be truly gone.

God Bless and may you forever, Rest in Peace, Brother.

Sgt. Greene,
My heart breaks for your family & friends. My first husband was a NC Trooper who was also killed by a careless tractor trailer driver in 2001. I pray the Lord will wrap his loving arms around your family & carry them through all the days ahead of them. There will be days when they won't even be able to get out of bed on their own without his help or encouragement from loving family & friends. It is difficult to not ask, WHY? Thanks for your service to both our country and Union County.
