    My thoughts and prayers are will all of you at this difficult time. I knew your Dad from Bert Fish. He was our Wednesday volunteer. He was the highlight of my day every time I saw him. He was truly a wonderful man. We will miss him very much and it won't be the same without Walter.
    He loved you all & your mom very much and spoke of you all often. My deepest sympathy is with your family.
