Wally, oh Wally! So many good memories with you! It was always a good time when you were around. One of my favorites was when Toby and I first went to Chicago as a couple to meet you. We were driving in the car and you hit a shopping buggy that was sitting square in the road. The colorful words that came out of your mouth were like a rainbow! But it was great and funny looking back because it broke the ice and tension of meeting the family. I felt so much more comfortable and not so uptight after that. And we all laugh at it looking back. Why was there a buggy in the road in the middle of the suburbs? Lol! My other favorite was hanging out at the fair with you. You were always down to ride the kiddie rides with the grands, which was awesome cause I hated it. We would always do something cool as a family like dress up as renegades from the Wild West! We weren’t always the perfect family, but we ALWAYS had love and patience with each other. This to me matters most. I will continue to keep your memory alive with the kids so they always have a vivid picture of their time with you. We will see each other again, but not quite just yet! We still have a little more of the Lords work to do.
