We extend our heartfelt sympathy in the passing of Walt. So sad to lose both parents. Walt and Hazel were two great people. Always considerate, caring and eager to help. We knew them well at Grace Brethren Church and I worked with Walt at OARDC. He often reminded me that you were born on my birthday, September 5. He loved you, Keri, and the grandchildren so much. We are praying the Lord will hold you all close and comfort your hearts.

My condolences to Walt's family and many friends, with love and prayers.

Prayers of comfort for your family during this difficult time. I met your parent s years ago where I worked. What an inspirational couple they were with their dedication to one another.

I know you will all miss them very much but you will have 2 guardian angels watching over you every day. God Bless
