As Wally's youngest sibling, I was "SUPPOSE TO BE A BOY!!"
As you can guess Wally was very disappointed to find out he had another sister. We have always teased each other about this!
He told me recently that he guessed I turned out alright even being a girl.
I have had the greatest pleasure in the last 15 years spending time with Wally every summer, camping at Camp Na-Bor-Lee. Of course people thought we were crazy to spend 1 to 2 weeks at a time camping, but neither one of us was ever ready to go home. He was always willing to take my kids for a ride in his little fishing boat, and he has taken my grandkids fishing many times.
I am very blessed to have had a brother who was funny, kindhearted, gentle in his actions, very loving to his family and Always there to help .
I can not even express how much I will miss him.
