Dear Irma and family,
We are so sorry to read this news about Walt. We did not know until we read it in the Southside Times today. We have a lot of memories from our years at St John, raising our children and watching their sporting games. Our kids had many good times together, as we did as friends. We've missed you all when their schools changed and we weren't together as much but always thought of you and still thought of you often. We still had our time together at church. Again we are sorry we didn't know about Walt. We would have been there for you all. May God bless you all and give you peace as you go through your grieving. With love, Shirley, Bill, Bill and Joe
