Walter, I am sending my best wishes to you and your family. I had only met you and your wife one time when you both drove Mattie and I to the airport when we were flying out of state. I so enjoyed the humor and love that you both shared during the ride to the airport. May you feel peace and joy when you think of the memories of a lifetime of love that you both have shared. My condolences to you and your family!

Steve, so so sorry about your mother. Sorry I couldn't be there. As you may know, my Aunt Judy passed the Monday following your mother. It's been a rough time for both of us, surely. Please tell your father, my prayers are with him as well.
