It is so hard to believe that a year has passed. Walter's legacy however continues and personally I do cherish his memory through Mary Ann who is my best friend and confidante. Walter will continue to be a huge part of how I educate future nurses in successful aging. God Bless his soul and may God protect his family.
We were very saddened to hear about the passing of Uncle Walter(Weeks). But there are so many memories that we have of "Weeks" and Auntie Mary especially visits to the Rainy Lake where he would give our son Andrew chocolate bars or lunches at Bridgeman's across. But we will miss his keen sense of humour and his love of all his family...(even us English ones!). As a legend in his own time, he will never be forgotten but lovingly remembered.

To Leda & Freddie. We thought Walter was wonderful and a stellar example of a life well lived and well loved. He is making music with the angels in heaven now! We know you & the entire family will miss him terribly. Our prayers are with you all.
My deepest sympathy on the passing of your father and grandfather Our oldest family member is now departed, what a wonderful legend to have endured 105 years. I got to know him better during my brief time in Fort Frances. Vichnya pomitat.

Sorry that I could not be with you in person for Walter's service, but please know that I was with you in spirit.
Walter was a special person who touched my life and others in a very positive way. I am honoured to have known him. I saw him as an outstanding music teacher, a role model, and a community leader. He cared about others. He was highly respected and made a difference for many.
When I visited, in the later years, he always welcomed me, and would offer me bread that he had made. I loved talking to your dad. He always had some advice for me. I learned from him. He had wisdom and a passion for life.
Please accept my sincere sympathy.
As always your good friend
