So saddened to learn of Walter's passing. We were great friends in our school years. I'm sure Walter had many memories of our togetherness with other young friends around Barboursville and the Blue Sulphur Road area. Our misadventures created many a laugh in our gatherings. In life, I missed mostly Sunday school meetings with Walter at the Mud River Baptist Church Youth Group. Poor Mr. Jack Burton, who taught our Sunday School Class, was a man of exceptional patience. Walter, you will be missed for a long time here in our presence, but I'm glad you now have Heavenly Peace. Jerry
