Walter was the finest person, was loved by everybody that knew him, and will be missed by all. He personified what a mighty man of God looks like in that he spoke softly, asked little, loved unconditionally, and served all. The loss to our family is immeasurable, and our time stands still in honor of the passing of his most beautiful spirit into the very presence of Father God. Though the world is diminished by his staggering absence, Heaven has simultaneously risen for a standing ovation at the entrance of this saint into The Kingdom.
