  6. I will miss Uncle Wally. He’s the one who taught me to go for a walk after supper. I still do this when I can. What a super guy – someone else mentioned that he made everyone feel special which is certainly true.

    My condolences to Auntie Jean, Bob & Bonnie, Don & Anne Marie, and Barbara
    xoxo

  8. Walter, you were my best friend, and I will miss you so much.
    all those phone calls were so special, I enjoyed many drives around Calgary, as well as drives in the country, to visit our aunt. You were so kind, and always such a happy person. You made everyone feel special.
