Dear Evelyn, Ralph, And Michelle. Thank you for sharing the Mimorial Tribute of Wally's life. He would be proud of you. He has been a good neighbor and friend for many years.

He has had an intersting life and enjoyed being with family and friends. He will always be remembered. Ellen Cooke Mesa, AZ.
