    Waldie was a good and kind soul. I always admired him for his ability to discern truth vs untruth and never judge a man based on outward appearances. I am saddened to have lost someone I still consider a friend from childhood. Though I did not see him often, whenever I saw him, it was as though no time had elapsed from the last meeting. Rest in peace and be proud of the wonderful family you have left to carry on.
