    I worked with Walter at Ft Knox National Bank later Army National Bank, for about two years! I was to teach him collections and lending at the bank, but it turned out he taught me so much more about life! He was a wonderful caring person! I think he knew everyone in the Army! If a two star came to Ft Knox he would introduce them to me and say we served together in 1971 when the General was a 1st Lt! You always saw the respect they had for your Dad! Thanks for sharing him with me!

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. Accept our sincere condolences. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
