  1. Walter was a big guy with a kind and loving heart; a wonderful friend to many people. He and Empie made the world a better place. I am glad to have known them and wish that more people on this earth could have been like them. Best wishes to Kathy, Bernice and their families for comfort and solace at this difficult time.
