Walter and Debbie were our neighbors when we lived in Manasquan. Always very kind and giving. Walter (Wally) helped me out once when my son locked my daughter in her bedroom. The lock froze and we couldn't unlock it to get her out. He didn't hesitate and came over to help. This was the type of man he was and the type of family they are. So very sorry to hear of his passing. I know he will be missed. Our thoughts and Prayers go out to you all.
Thinking of you-
