    Kay and Family, I just happened to stumble on the news of Walker's passing this morning. I am so sorry to hear this and have you all in my thoughts and prayers. I know you will take comfort in knowing that Walker was such a good person as you celebrate his life. Concerning St. Jude's, Carol and I have just recently made our plans to visit St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis in March. We will think of Walker as we tour that wonderful place. Love you all, Bobby
