  2. Walt was one of the finest men I’ve ever known. A true Southern gentleman. The best thing I can say about Walt is that he loved God, and he loved his family. I hope each of you will find comfort in the knowledge that you will be with Walt again someday when our Lord calls the rest of us Home. May God bless you all is my prayer.

  3. 2Cor. 5:8, tells us that we are confident, I say, and willing, rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. I’m sure that Uncle Walt is present with his Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord!!! We will see you again some day. The circle will not be broken if we believe. Bryant and Lynn, Forsyth, Ga.
