Quinn and Logan, We are so sorry for the loss of your dad. He was a great guy and good friend! Our sympathies. Tom, Joyce, Brian and Matt.

Ginny & Family, Sincerest sympathy following the passing of your dear brother and father of your nephews. Travel safely as you prepare to lay him to rest.

Walker and I were basketball teammates for 2 years at Triway HS. We stayed in touch over the years and always talked about our basketball memories and life memories. I will miss talking with him at the Scots games. Great guy and great friend. As we veterans say, "RIP Brother."

Thinking about how Walker got his nickname always makes me smile. Keeping you all in my thoughts.

Sorry to hear about John... Great classmate, and friend. Stubby, fat kids shouldn't last so long as we sometimes do...

So very sorry for your loss. I remember when John became "Walker". He was a unique individual and will be greatly missed by family and friends. Cherish your memories.
