I just wanted to add my thought's on Walter's death. Sorry for your loss. My father, Thilford talked about Walter and I think they were classmates when in High School in Hatton. My dad had good memories of Walter.

Just wanted to say that Walter was truly "Teddy Bear." They couldn't have picked a better nickname to describe such a gentle considerate man. He was one of the people I will always remember with a smile. Always enjoyed visiting with him at my moms house. I'll miss you teddy. Remember, "don't feed da bears!" Love Mark.
