To the Walter's Family, Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your Dad. He was a great guy and we have many fond memories with your family at the Lion's events when we were young. Julie Darling (nee Nairn)
I am sorry to see that Mr. Walters has died . I didn't see him often when I taught Jamie, Debbie and Gary but in later years we shared the doctors' waiting room quite often and had friendly chats . I know from experience that no matter how prepared you are to lose a parent it always seems unexpected when it actually happens . Jamie and Bev, you helped him a lot these last few years and I know he was able to stay in his home for a longer time thanks to you. Karen Peters.
Sending our condolences to the Walters family. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
