Please accept my sincere condolences. Walt was a good neighbor to my parents and when we were kids we played with his kids a lot, riding bicycles and swimming in the pond. I always liked seeing Walt go by on a tractor, with that funny smile and wave... I am very sorry for your loss.

I am a distant cousin of the family. When we were all kids we used to go to your house on the Van Rens. Road. I loved being there with all of you. We played a lot of ball games and had lots of fun. So sad to lose a sibling. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. God bless.
