Condolences

Walter always was so smiling and pleasant. Will miss that.

I am so sorry for your loss I wish I could be there with you.

We are so very sorry to hear of the passing of Walter from this life to the next life. All of you are in our prayers and may GOD give you peace and comfort along with strength to get through this very difficult time. Keep all the good memories of him with you always.

Sorry for your loss to you all

I want to express my deepest sympathy to Sandy and the entire Bowers family. Abe and Walt worked together and I am sure they are both in heaven telling stories and laughing at crazy jokes.

I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a great man and I am glad that I got to be around him growing up.

He was a great person and neighbor. I am so sorry for the loss. I hope that you all find comfort and peace as you adjust to life without him here, and find happiness in knowing that we all will be united again someday.

With heartfelt sympathy and prayers for you and your family.
For the Lord shall comfort. Isaiah 51:3
