Well only two months late...,but typical for me. I was so sorry to hear of Wally's passing.I always looked forward to visiting with him. He had such a warm, comforting personality. We passed a lot of great jokes back and forth when we met. One memory of one of our encounters was at ( I think Diane's wedding ) rehearsal dinner. Upon arriving he came right over to the spot where I was sitting. Of course the jokes started to fly. However, the action that sticks with me forever is when he got up to leave, and he took off his blazer and asked me to try it on. It fir perfect, and he said " you keep it.. I really don't need it anymore. I will truly miss his friendly loving personality
