    Our condolences to the family in the loss of Wally. We knew Wally, Dorothy and the kids many years ago in Michigan. My mother, Phyllis Shoebridge, worked with Dorothy at Olan Mills for several years. And my sister, Marie Shoebridge Horak, baby sat Jill and Julie when they were pre-school age along with my niece, Brandy Horak DeFisher and my daughter Daena Lee Mireau. Always enjoyed the family and visited often on Horseshoe Drive. Take care and thinking of all of you.

    Never have I met a more gentle, kind, and caring man as Wally. My deceased husband and I had the pleasure of being across the street neighbors with Wally when he first moved to The Plantation. Wally married Arminta, and they eventually returned to live in the same house. Unfortunately, I had moved when they moved back. Arminta, you have my utmost and caring sympathy and love. I will be checking in on you in the future when I visit The Plantation. Your loss was such a shock to me, as I did not know he had been ill. I will be in touch. My love to you, your children, and to Wally's family.
