Dear Shannon , Brian & Family:
Your Dad was a wonderful man.
I have such fond memories when we would come up to the house for parties and ride the horses.
Your Dad would help anyone in need. He was a kind and gentle soul.
Rest in Peace Walt we all love you. 💙

Goodbyes are so very hard, especially when its such an amazing person. Godspeed home, Walt. Thanks for the memories, the loyalty, the friendship to my family. Always there when the tuff times roled around. I will forever cherish the memories of The Chatterbox (Patty Ann's christening...LOL), the trips to Davies Lake, the parties at my parents home.
Shannon did an amazing job with your send off, as I'm sure you were watching. You fought the good fight, now its time to rest peacefully & eternally with your parents, sister, Annie, Little Walt & all the others before you. Its true what they say, "all good things come to an end". See you on the other side. xoxox Much love & respect.
