Send an online condolence.
My sincere condolences to you Patricia and your family. I have fond memories of visiting the farm many times growing up. Aunt Edythe and Uncle Morgan's family always welcomed this "city" boy. Walter and I often rode "Shotgun" with Aunt Edythe in the pickup taking the eggs for grading in Thorndale.
So sorry to hear of Walt's passing. Even though I didn't know walt long, I will miss him.
