Walter and I had been friends since I was 10 years old. He and Bobbie are still two of my very best friends. After so many years, there are not enough words to express the sense of loss one feels.
My love and sympathy to Bobbie and the family. Walter spoke of his family often, and it was easy to tell how much he loved them.
Grace, peace and love to you all.
