When we think of Walter, one word comes to mind, "Jolly". My family and I met both Walter and Jackie almost 20 years ago when we opened up our new Veterinary Hospital. They were looking for a new Veterinarian. We were the fortunate ones to have been their choice. They took our whole family under wing as my husband and I, along with our two young children were just starting our new business. From there our friendship grew. When Walter walked into the hospital and our children heard his voice and his contagious laughter, they would run to him with hugs as though Santa had just appeared. Both Walter and Jackie were always supportive and encouraging to all of us. We are thankful for the friendship we shared and will always remember Walter when we look at his beautiful carvings he so graciously gifted us. As Thomas Jefferson said, "Friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life." We will miss you Walter, but look forward to seeing you in our next life with our Heavenly Father! Much Love, Chris, Cheri, Shawn and Shelbi

Walter was a very dear relative of mine since childhood. His grandfather and my grandfather were brothers. We shared many wonderful stories growing up. Especially, how we both were blessed with having wonderful wives. Walter's father, Mitchell and my mother, Helen, often told us of the fun they had, as well, growing up. My mother was a tom boy and they both loved to climb trees. The other relative girls would never climb a tree, as their Parents feared them falling and getting injured. One day, Uncle Mitchell and my mother wanted to see how high they could climb a tall pecan tree. After climbing some 30 feet, they both wanted to sit on a limb to see the view. The limb broke and they both fell to the ground. Everyone rushed over to see if they were fine and found them laughing to tears as they didn't even have a scratch. Henceforth, they were Tarzan and Jane, but the girls would still not climb a tree. When Walter came to Miami to join a law firm, we renewed our relationship through many phone calls, lunches, etc. I miss him very much. A true loyal, loving, and dear special relative, I called with pride and love "Cousin".

I will miss Walter's big friendly smile, great humor and contagious laughter. I don't think I ever saw him go anywhere without making a new friend, and I felt grateful to have been one them. Rest in peace buddy, you are already greatly missed.
