    Dear Greta, I am so very sorry to hear that your beloved husband and my special friend, Wally, has passed away. To know that he is no longer suffering certainly must bring you peace. You made him very happy, Greta, and I'm sure it must have been a wonderful feeling for him to know that you were holding him in your arms when he took his final breath. God bless you and all of us who mourn for him. I am truly blessed that you and Wally included me in your life. What an honor! What a joy! Love, Mollie

    Dear Greta, I know how much Uncle Gene meant to you. I also know that Dad loved his little brother very much and loved the time that he was able to spend with him, Dad's last trip out there for the Funeral for uncle Tommy. I am so sorry for your loss. I only wish that I could have spent more time with you both. Love you and miss you.

Throughout the years that he worked with me, he gave me lots advice, made me laugh and talked a lot about the family that he loved. Please know that I will never forget Wally and the time that he spent with us. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
