    We are saddened to learn of Wally’s passing. He was a dear friend and a wonderful mentor to my children, as they were growing up in the Manor. He was always there, to console and council them, after my late husband’s passing. Wally will always have a special place in our hearts (as does Caroline)… he is sorely missed!

    I’m sorry we didn’t know at the time, so we could have come to express our condolences. Please extend our regards to the family…

    Love in Christ,
