  1. My deepest sympathy on the loss of a fantastic man. I remember his patience with me when I “helped” him lay hardwood flooring in my Dad and ex-step-mother’s bedroom many years ago. I always enjoyed seeing him at the house or anywhere we went. Rest in peace, Walt.

  2. Helen, I’m sorry for your loss. Walter was a good guy. My condolences to you and your family.

  3. I am so very sorry for your loss. Uncle Walter will be missed so much. I loved talking to him, seeing him smile and hearing his stories during this last year. May God bless and give you peace during this time. Love to all, Nancy
