Dearest family! I have so many wonderful memories of my Uncle Wally. I remember the first time my mom and I came in Chicago and seen Uncle Wallys new house, year 1984. My Mom has said you really have a nice house and Uncle Wally said, I wouldn’t buy a dump Skip! Then my sister Michelle and I visited and stayed with him and Aunt Irene. And we talked all night, Aunt Clara, Gail, and many more came to see us there. He made special effort to know he loved me and my family. Surprised us for our daughter’s graduation, came to Missouri another time, on surprise, to see all of us and made it known he had to go see his great nephews new house! He always did make me personally, feel very special. I was the only one in the room is how I felt!! Kirkie, he told me the last time I seen him July, that he taught you how to make sippin whiskey??? I have my bottles ready to turn in. He has done this for years for us! So special!!
He will live forever in my heart!!! He was special to my husband and I both!!
My you all hold each other tighter and love stronger!! Just know, he is in a better place than we are. And he loved all of you!! Stay in touch! I love my family so very much. It’s all you really have in life. Family Forever!! All my loving prayers and thoughts go to Dawn, Wally, Kirkie and Frankie!!! And the rest of the family!! “Tata and all that shit”! That’s what Aunt Clara would say!! 😘❤️ OXOXO
