Just saw this on line. “Memories light the corner of my mind. Misty water-coloured memories of the way we were”. When we were young. Thinking of you today.

A distant neighbor, but an extremely fine man. He loved to catch ball in the middle of the street (hill)/ My sincere condolences to Walter’s wife, son and extended family.
