Sonia and family-- we go back along time and I feel so privileged to say that I knew Wally, for he loved life, his children and especially his wife. My fondest memories are of him singing at Malanka and being so proud to be of Ukrainian heritage. Taken from you way too soon - but he is in place now free from pain and able to play his music and sing forever. God bless you all.

To Sonia and family,
No words can offer support when you lose such an amazing person as Wally was. I can still think back to when I first met him and saw how truly happy you were Sonia. You could not have been happier and you deserved that happiness. We will all cherish the memories we had of this caring, talented and wonderful man. I hope that you all have a little peace knowing he truly is in a better place and that he does not have to suffer any more. Wishing you all strength through the challenging times and know that your family loves you very much. Suzanne Vaughan and family xoxoxo

I'll never forget the Kalamaika's Wally made so animated and fun by singing at the top of his lungs and playing his guitar, with sonia by his side on the accordian. He made our dance troop feel like a family. The warmth of his presence and smile as well as his beautiful family, I feel privelaged to have witnessed. Your memory will always be a light in my life, no doubt that you are greatly missed by all. My deepest sympathies to a very wondeful family for your loss. All our love and prayers.
