It is with a very heavy heart that I know it is time to say a final good bye to my amazing Father. Anyone that knew my Dad knew what a selfless man he was. He never put himself first. Instead he spent his whole life caring for what everyone he loved needed. If you needed the shirt off his back you would get it. From a young man until his last day on Earth he worried so much about the safety of everyone he loved. It didn't matter if you were traveling a distance or just a block or two, you had to call him to let him know you were okay. I don't know how Sandy, Lori, Wally or myself got so lucky to have Walter Krol as our father. He loved all of his family so much. Life had been so hard for my family, including my dad, with the heartbreaking recent loss of my mother. We don't have them anymore, but they spent very little time apart. They are now hand in hand again. I think my dad needed to make sure my mom was being treated good enough in Heaven. I also think my dad needed to check on his recently departed brother-in-law and best friend, Robert Linowski. This is so hard because my dad wasn't just my dad, he was the most incredible man and now he's gone. He was my hero, my whole life and now I can take comfort and I'm so grateful for all of the memories I have and for all the time I had with him. Heaven is now a better, safer place because my dad is there to make sure everyone is okay.

It's May 7th and today is your birthday dad, you would've been 92. I wanted so much to celebrate one more birthday with you but God had other plans. He could see how you were suffering at the end with your own health and your broken heart from missing mom. He also knew how lonely mom was without you and decided to call you home too. Now you and mom are together again in heaven and the two of you will celebrate your birthday together. Happy Birthday Dad!!!! I love you and miss you so much!!!!!
Love, Lori ❤

Sending my condolences across the miles. Wally was without a doubt one of the hardest working and nicest of men in the world. What a great loss. Take comfort in knowing he followed his love through the pearly gates and they are together forever. My heart goes out to you all. I loved Wally and Delores like a second set of parents. I'm sorry I cannot be there with you all today. Much love and virtual hugs being sent your way. XOXO

First my mom and now my dad,
My heart is broken and I'm so very sad,
When it comes to Dad's, I had the best,
I can't even tell you how much he'll be missed,
He loved each one of us so much,
We're all going to miss his gentle touch,
He had a heart as big as the sun and for each one of us there's nothing he wouldn't have done,
My love for him is just as strong and without him I don't know how I'm supposed to go on.
My mom was his soul mate, he loved her more than anything,
They're together now in heaven and they're both wearing angels wings.
I love you Dad more than words can say,
I'll miss you more and more each and every day!!!!!
Love you forever, Lori

My DAD
You where my true superman. We did things together that no one not even mom knew we did. I know over the years everyone said I was moms boy. But the truth was I did things to impress you and make you proud of me I know I did something that did not but I tried to make up for that I hope you knew that. Me and you had a different bond like when I would call the house when you where sick you could not talk well but some how for me you tried harder just so knew you would not let me down. You always made a point to go for a ride in every car I got even the last one I got in December. I came over with my new car and you told me go get my coat and hat and some how you did it you went for a ride with me. Little did you know I had one more car for you to ride in and I was going to take you for a ride when you came over for your birthday party at my house this year. But know you never will. I have your last truck you had and I'm going to cherish it for as long as I'm here. I'm going to live your dream and open the HOT DOG STAND YOU ALWAYS WANTED. I made you some promises last week that I would Watch over your three daughters your little girls and I will. And you also asked me to keep all of us close together I WILL DAD
I hope I made you proud of me I LOVE YOU DAD.
YOU BOY WALLY
