I was very fortunate to attend a number of Walter's Bible Studies. Walter was a simple sweet man with a heart of gold. He loved the lord and helped countless others including myself know the Lord.. God Bless You Walter!

Walter changed my whole perspective of how I saw Jesus Christ. He showed me through his relationship that he has with God Almighty the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ that life on this earth is manageable through obedience. Walter was the epitome of what a husband should be, you loved Virginia with all of his heart & put God first and although life was not easy it always played out the way the Lord wanted to in Walters life. Walter changed me from the inside out he told me about the difference from how the brain thinks logic which is of the flesh and how the heart feels the spirit in a direct connection with spiritual undertones and true meanings with Bible definitions. Walter always showed me the truth. I would like to give Walter the credit for saving my life but because of the way that he lived his life and how I consumed this, I change my life and I now live my life for my Savior Jesus Christ. Walter I will miss you and I love you very much. I know you’re with Virginia and Bonnie; I know this is exactly the way you wanted to leave the earth. In one of your last Bible studies that we had together in mid-December you said you wanted to leave the earth after having a Bible study with the boys. You mean so much to me I will always think of you thank you for praying for my family and you and your family will forever be in my prayers.
