    Walter has been a figure of my childhood as a neighbor and friend for as long as I have memory. He was always looking out for me when I walked home from school. He would tell me “don’t worry Sis, old Walter ain’t gonna let anybody hurt you”, He was a gentle giant with an infectious laugh. He looked out for my family as we did him over the years. Arlene and Henry would bring me toys, and homemade goodies and remedies when I was sick. As I got older, I was able to appreciate his stories, and secrets about where the deer were hiding. I respected his knowledge that only mountain men have. Walter was an elite breed of men that are going down the valley one by one. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to know him. I am very sadden for his family. My hope is the our Lord and Saviour will give them the grace they need during this hour of loss.
