    I grew up next door to this wonderful big family just like my big family on High Street, with many wonderful brothers and sisters. The one thing I really admire and remember about all of them is their “Faith ” . God Bless you Walt as you are now home. Like I told my Father just before he passed ” you are now going to paradise ” May you now rest in peace Walt and you will be missed ….

    Walt you were a great big brother, to me and a great Uncle to all the neices and nephews. I named my son after you, because of the family ties we all have.
    You will be missed and loved always.

    Walt my dear sweet brother you will be missed so very much. You will always live on in my heart forever. I fond a prayer i felt comforting and if i can share it here may those who read it also find the same.
    I am home in Heaven,dear ones
    Oh, so happyand so bright, There is
    perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light,
    Allthe pain ang grief is over,
    Every restless tossing passed;
    I am now at peace forever,
    Safely home in Heaven at last.
    Did you wonder Iso calmy
    Trod the vally of the shade?
    Oh! but Jesus’ love illumined
    Every dark and fearful glade.
    Ane He came Himselh to meet me
    inthatwayso hard to tread.
    And with Jeasus’ arm to lean on,
    Could I have one doubt or dread?

    Then You mustnot Grieve so sorely,
    For I love you dearly still::
    Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
    Pray to Trust Our FatherWill.
    Thereis work still waiting for you,
    Soyou must not idly stand;
    Doit now, while life remaineth-
    You shall rest in Jesus’ Land
    When that work is all completed,
    He will gently call you Home;
    Oh, the rapture of that meeting;
    Oh, the Joy to See You Come Home!!
    I hope when you read this you will feel the fomfort as I did it feels like Walt talking back to us to pray and Trust. and to keep busy following Gods’ plan.
    We all need to feel the peace and joy of his passing.. This has really brought me closer to Walt and knowing he is in Heaven and in peace. We will be all home together in Gods plan.
