May the family find comfort in loving memories, and in knowing that God is "close to those that are broken at heart; and he saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18)  Our loving Creator, Jehovah God, has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces" (Isaiah 25:8).  With deepest sympathy.

I'm sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear about Wally's death.  I enjoyed working with him when he worked for Field Services in the old Rochester DNR office.  He had a wry sense of humor that served him well in the bureaucracy and was always a helpful co-worker.

We send our love and condolances. Love, Kevin and Dao

The loss of a loved one is a very sad and heavy load to bare. May you find comfort at Acts 24:15 "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."
