    My deepest sympathy to Louise and family. Special condolences to his sister Pauline and her family. I went to school with Pauline at Tomahawk High School and knew Walter from those days back in the 1950’s.

  4. The Ries family :

    Thelma and the kids are thinking of you and remembering some very powerful, wonderful memories. We send regrets that mom cannot make it Saturday but she will be coming to Calgary in March for much needed time with her life long friends.

    To share a little from mom’s message of love she sends Louise in her card –
    “Louise, my dear friend Louise, and family, Wally will be missed terribly but the day will come that Jesus will come again and we will see our loved ones.”
