It was always great to see them at the Walker family reunions. They were both very loving family members and always happy to see everyone of every age. They will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and Mitzi.

Two of the most beautiful people to grace this earth.
Doug and Wanda will always have a special place in our hearts.
They will grace our glorious savior and dwell in his house forever.
Jesus has welcomed his trusting servants and you know he was so
glad to see how much happiness they brought everyone.
