It was such a pleasure to have known your parents at their stay at Knollcrest Lodge. Walter has impressed upon me his strong faith, sure ways, and endearing love he had for his family and friends. He never failed to ask any of us, “how we were doing” when he had such health issues himself. He has left a mark on us all, and we remember him fondly. I know there is a big hole to fill in your family gatherings now, but you have many wonderful memories I am sure of them both.

To the entire family, We give our sincerest sympathy to you. It sure is different when both parents are no longer where you can call or speak with them. All your questions will remain unanswered unless the Aunts & Uncles can fill in the missing blanks! We remember the GOOD times we had with them in their various homes! May you carry on their faith. Shalom.
