    What a sad day for us when you took your final breath here on earth, but a great day for you when you woke up on the other side with Jesus Christ our Lord.
    We are going to miss you so much. Your love for the little Children at Church was such a blessing to see. The year you helped me with my 2yr old class in VBS was so much fun. We crawled in the loft in the Holy Land room and had a great time with those little kids that listened to us talk about the David and the Giant. You reminded me everytime I saw you about the rock you still have at home that I gave out that day. You were such a blessing and great help with the Children in Journey Kids. You will be missed so much. It was a honor to call you my friend. See you soon Walter, hope you didn’t forget your rock!!
    Rest in Peace and Love,
