    I attended Creighton Law School 1975-1978 and I took every course Professor Green taught, regardless of how interested I might be in the subject matter of the course itself. He was a brilliant communicator who not only taught the law but how to think like a lawyer. And to more than top it off, his enthusiasm and obvious interest were more than sufficient to keep me awake and attentive during the entire class as a major bonus. I remember one question he put together for a Labor Law final exam where horrible things and great mayhem were happening throughout the facts of the question, but where the (most correct) answer was that, fully against one's emotional and intuitive response nothing actionable had in fact occurred; nobody could be sued or jailed for anything described. Professor Green kept me on my toes in ways that resonated throughout my professional legal career. Thank you, Professor Green, and may you find a worthy audience on the other side. My sympathies to the family and may his brilliant light continue to light your way forward.

    I send my sympathy and healing energies to all members of the family. I valued Dr. Green as a faculty member and the Health Law course he taught me. May memories of all his strengths help in healing your grief. Regards...Beth Furlong

    Pat was a treasured friend. I admired him very much, personally and professionally. I remember so well the first time he was called on to discuss a case in first year Torts (I think it was). He started out discussing the holding of the case and then launched into a discussion of other cases on the subject, citing them by case name, volume and page. I jerked my head around to see who this voice belonged to and almost wrenched my neck. His brilliance of mind never ceased to amaze me. After we retired, I enjoyed Larry Myers' coffee group that met monthly at the Market Basket where Pat and other lawyer friends discussed issues of the day. I will remember him forever. R.I.P. Old Friend
