  1. Teresa, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I know you were very close. I’m sending you and your family my heartfelt condolences and will be thinking of you and wishing you the best.

  2. My Uncle Walt was a great person with a sense of humor and a deep caring for his family. My sister Pam said a lot of the things I was going to say since we have a lot of the same memories. I am so glad that he is with God now, out of pain, and reunited with Mardelle and all the family and friends that past before him. There were so many fun times with the vacations our two families took together with stories that would make you laugh so hard you had tears. I too am very sorry I can’t make it to his service, but send my deepest condolences and prayers for the family. Walt was greatly loved and will be missed, but we will meet again some day. May God bless you and help your loved ones get through this difficult time. Amazing Grace how sweet it is!

  3. I have wonderful memories of Uncle Walt and our many joint family vacations to Meadowlark, Yellowstone, Midwest, Easters and Thanksgivings in Billings, Great Falls and in Worland. He, Mardell, and my parents were best friends as well as beloved family. I could always count on Uncle Walt to make the world’s greatest pancakes for breakfast – he always said you had to throw away the first one to be sure the griddle was the right temperature. Walt was a kind, gentle, quiet man who spoke slowly and thoughtfully but meant every word he said. He will be reatly missed and I am so sad I am not able to attend his services. I send my thoughts, prayers and love to his wonderful family during this difficult time.
