Dear Aunt Betty and family--we are so sorry to learn of Uncle Wallie's passing. I know you will miss him more than words can describe. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. It was a joy to know him and to work with him on the farm all the years of my youth. I appreciated his truly pleasant nature, his patience, and his enjoyment of being with family and friends. The world is a better place because of his life, and we have so many good memories with him. We hope all the memories you have will comfort you. --Fred and Phyllis Ward
