Janet I’m praying for you and your family! You and Walt have been a blessing to me, our community and church! I have many memories I keep thinking of from school bus rides, him driving around the neighborhood delivering fresh veggies, bringing me my first pistol and teaching me to shoot it, he could cook a yummy meal also, visiting y’all and him saying don’t go girl! I appreciate him keeping an eye on my property when I was away, I could count on him for update reports, And the most resent was you calling me to help you get him in bed! That should have been on video it was sad but hilarious at the same time! Sure glad Joan and I didn’t drop him in the floor! Think on all the good times and most of all the day he accepted Christ as his savior! I love you girl and call anytime you need to talk!

My sympathy and condolences to the Carter family. I worked with Walt while at Miller and always had great conversations and assistance from him when needed. We worked around each other most days. Walt was like a family member. Last I got to see him was Friday lunches at our friend Archie's house. He is going to be missed I am sure. He was a great man to be proud of. Rest in peace Walt.
