Wally was the epitome of a family man with a penchant for woodworking. When asked by anyone, the thing that is said time and again is that Wally is a GOOD MAN and will be missed immensely.
His ever-loving personality has touched so many hearts and will continue to do so through loving thought and ceaseless memories
“You are the very air that I breathe. We were not a you or a me. We have always been an US. Together we were ONE person. I know God made a PERFECT MAN because I was married to him. I am the luckiest woman in the world to have been loved by you & I will love you till the day I die. I cannot wait to be in your arms again. I LOVE YOU!”
