My condolences to Jan, Garth, Angela and Dean. I was surprised to learn of Walt's passing. I was just thinking of him on his birthday, July 26th, and thought if I had his phone number, I'd surprise him with a call to wish him a Happy Birthday!

I have great memories of growing up across the street from my cuz and walking to school together. I always remember him as fun-loving and thoughtful, who loved his beautiful wife Jan and family. I think the last time I saw Walt and Jan was 7 years ago at my husband's funeral. He will be missed, but we will all see him again some day! Blessings, hope and peace to you all!
