Dear Ruby Gayle, Donna & family

We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Walter's death. We are unable to make the service today but wanted to let you know that you all are in our thoughts & prayers & will be in the coming days. We know where Walter is & that he is rejoicing in seeing his Lord & all those that have gone before. We always used to chuckle when Dad would talk about Uncle Walter because Dad was older then Walter. We always had fun visiting with you all. It is never easy saying by to our Dad but we have memories to keep close to our hearts but we still wish they were here with us. Tell Scott we said hello & I will never forget the time we realized that we were related when the Symphonic Band was in Toronto. Praying for you all for peace, strength, wisdom & comfort today & in the days ahead. Gods blessings on you all.

My deepest condolences for your loss. I will remember him as a kind and considerate gentleman who absolutely adored his wife and daughter. I always enjoyed seeing him in my office and it was my pleasure to care for him all those years. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you endure this difficult time.
