Nov. 11, 1947 Walter and his wife Renee invited Betty and me to Walter's Birthday party. Renee and Betty were school mates in High School. It was love at first sight for both of us. Nov 11,1948 Betty and I married and Walter was the best man. Aug.5, 2018 Renee called me and told me about Walter's passing and all the suffering he has been going through. May he rest in peace.

I don't have enough good words to say. I will always cherish the weeks I spent out on the ranch and riding fences with you. You were a very special person to say the least.
