Dear Bev and family,

Rick and I are so sorry to hear of Walt's passing. We have alot of fond memories with him farming our land and his kindness to our family. Buddy was especially upset over the news. What a great person and neighbor he was. I wish I had known earlier that he was a veteran. May he rest in peace . Much love to you and your family.
