Find Us Faithful

We're pilgrims on the journey on the narrow road and those who've gone before us line the way cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace. Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses let us run the race not only for the prize but as those who've gone before us let us leave to those behind us the heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives. Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful. May the fire of our devotion light their way may the footprints that we leave lead them to believe, and the lives we live inspire them to obey. Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful.

As a parts supplier to Bell Helicopter it was a pleasure to work with Walter. He was highly respected and managed his suppliers with the utmost integrity and fairness. While I was at Triumph Aerospace, Walter was always eager to help solve any issues that arose and was professional at all times. He will be missed by all that he worked with.

We were blessed to know Walt for 5 years through the marriage of his son, Micah to our daughter Rebecca. We'll always be grateful for the wonderful father-in-law Walt was to our daughter, and will always remember his smile, his gentle spirit, and most of all, his love for his Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. His mission is complete. He's finally home! We'll miss him!

It has been a privilege and blessing to know Mr. Howey and the entire Howey family for over ten years. They represent the true spirit of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, inspiring others to do the same.

Kathy, we will always remember your wonderful contribution to the worship team at Grand Prairie Bible Church and how much you and Walt were part of our introduction to the church. Thank you for being such an example of true devotion to your husband and family. We are both saddened that the 'love of your life' will no longer be by your side physically --but we know that he is with you through the wonderful memories and in his eternal spirit. Blessings to you and your family as you embrace the new chapter of your life.
