Dear Family. May we all be comforted by the wonderful memories Walter has left us in his warm smile and cunning sense of humor (just like Uncle Luther) for it is the intent of his heart that mattered the most, however Walter was able to convey it. We are admonished to look at the heart and not the outward appearance (I Samuel 16:7). Let us hold fast to the good will Walter had for all of us and let us strive to live it out each day. In the days, weeks and months ahead as Walter rests in peace, may we find comfort in God promises that "as our days, so shall our strength be" (Deuteronomy 33:25) and that nothing....not even life or death or anything can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-39).
