Dear Betty!
Oh my Walt has already seen your daughter and Don Kamb and sooo many others that are with the Lord now. .. it seems hard to believe our actual friends are being called Home — instead of someone else’s family.. I remember being your neighbor . It was always a good time with your family. I can see his smile now.. bless your heart. One more day closer to Christ’s Return . soon!! Love you, Marty Kamb Rhodes
I just found out about his passing and his service. I’m sorry I missed coming. Will be praying for you and the family.

I had the privilege of working with Walt at the Sealed Air offices in Duncan.  He was always a gentle and soft-spoken soul with a light hearted gleam in his eye.  His work was meticulous, reflecting his attention to detail and orderliness.  Once I had hung a small Christmas wreath at my desk with the bow at about the 4 o'clock position (more artistic that way).  When Walt saw it, he tried to unobtrusively reposition it to 6 o'clock (symmetrical).  I had to smile.  I had placed the hanging loop so it would hang at  4 o'clock.  When I explained that I had purposely hung it that way "because it was more artistic" he just smiled.  He smiled and shook his head slightly every time he looked at it.  I will always remember Walt as a sweet and Godly man who was a joy to work with.
