    Walt, rest in God's peace. You are missed by my wife Marilyn and me as well as by your family, and many, many others. Your faithfulness at the Church of the Servant is greatly missed but your memory and your gifts of art to the church will always be a blessed reminder of you and your love of our Lord and the congregation.
