    Condolences to Mrs. Walker and family. Mr. Wally was such a pleasure to work with when I first moved here. He always had a smile on his face and enjoyed what he did. It was nice seeing him around town after leaving work and taking time to speak and catch up on life. He will be greatly missed. May God be with you!
