Pop, you're missed and loved very much! I always enjoyed coming over to visit with you and remember all those knuckle sandwiches you were always offering to me, I had to respectfully decline because your one tough dude. You made Jennifer the "1st Sergeant" for years and then gave it back to me a couple years ago, thanks now I have something on her! You had many intriguing stories about your hunting adventures and gave me your prized hunting rifle, thank you I will always treasure it and defiantly use it to keep on the hunting sport you very much loved! You were in the Army and we could relate as I am in the Army. We would talk about how it is now and how it was "back then". I could ask your advice on my car troubles and you could tell me exactly what I needed to do to get me fixed up, you really knew your stuff. I really enjoyed the time and keep it as a fond memory of when you and Granny came to visit Jennifer and me in Georgia. You and I took a walk out back of our house down into the woods to enjoy the outdoors and to look for deer and we saw some down by the creek. I know granny and Jennifer were concerned about you going out there because it was a steep incline down to get into the woods and then to come back up the hill to the house. You took nice and easy and made it with no problems like a champ, I know you also enjoyed that time we had together as I've heard different variations of that story from other family you shared it with. When we first met about ten years ago you were out at the lake house clearing your top lot of trees and brush. You were always doing things around there to maintain and make the lake house better. I know you loved that place and did so so much to it to make it what is today to enjoy, thank you for such a nice place to enjoy! Over the last several years and to this day when you weren't able to do as much to your lake house as I know you would of liked to it has been very well kept up by Paula and Lee who do so much to it as you very well know. Pop, I have so many fond memories of you I cherish and I love you and miss you lots!

Walt "Pop" Sutter was one of the hardest working and toughest men I've ever known. But that never stopped him from having an abundantly kind heart. I didn't have a lot of family close by, so I always thought of him and Mary as my own family close to home and always felt that I was their other adopted grandson. The world has truly lost a great man and my sincerest sympathies and condolences go out to everyone in the family.

Pop, I love you and will forever miss you. May you rest in peace.
