I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Walt. He was truly a great person, banker and friend. My thoughts go out to the family during this time of sadness.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

I always looked forward to seeing Walter, Wes and Katie and her family over the holidays and during the summer. These time will be a little emptier.

With much love,
