Walter Lee and I are Thankful We met you and you we built a Friendship with through the Years. May You be with your wife Margaret again and you are at peace for Eternity. Thank You
Godspeed Walter and may God bless your family. Honored to have known you. Thank you for your service and continued support for all veterans. You will certainly be remembered for all you gave. Love you.
Oh Walter, you’re going to be missed by many. You were one of the first people I met when I moved up here. You came by the house we were building & dropped off a wetsaw. Like we were old friends and you barely knew us. You’ve always been a stand up guy. When you had hurricane damage and came to me to purchase a new home, I was only too happy to help you get Fema to replace it. It’s sad that you’re gone to heaven now but somehow I’m smiling and thinking about how funny you were. The things you said, the way you say it. You’re always going to an amazing man here or not. May you Rest in Peace Much love to you my friend
Will miss you my friend. You were a wonderful man who served our country and never stopped loving it. I’m a lucky man to have known you and respect you for your service and help with other veterans. May you rest in peace and find your fellow soldiers from your past.
