  2. My heartfelt sympathy to uncle Walter family. My favorite memories are uncle Walter visits to NY, he was always “chill and spiffy from head to toe”, I know he’s in heaven introducing his skills in style. His smile will shine from heaven forever!

    I still remember the day my uncle walked me down the isle on my wedding day almost twenty-nine years ago. My dad had died and uncle felt privileged to do it in his absence. It was just like him to willingly step in and he did it with style and grace. Uncle always knew how to put an outfit together. Even in jeans he looked tailored. Like me, I’m sure the family will remember him as a grade of excellence and I’m glad to have known him. Happily he’s not gone forever. He is in Jehovah’s memory and will be brought back to life as we knew him according to John 5:28 & 29. Until then, he will sleep peacefully. My sympathy and prayers are altogether with the family.
