  1. To the Walton family, I’d like offer my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I know we’ve never met, but I worked with George at S&C Electric, and feel as if I know you. George spoke of you often, and loved you very much. May your memories bring you solace during these hard times. God Bless

  2. On behalf of all of us at The Cottages of Fox Lake I want to convey our deepest condolences on Mr. Walton’s passing. George was beloved by all of our staff and residents and admired for his service to country, his love of family, his stories and to me at least his love of the Packers!! He will be missed. We thank you especially Gary for your faithful visits and encouragement you gave our staff. We feel blessed and honored to continue caring for Ms. Catherine. Wishing you God’s comfort and abundance of memories to sustain you in the days ahead.

  3. Cathy and family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. I will always cherish those fond memories I’ve shared with both of you in my heart.
