There was surely sadness since the death of Shirley in May, yet we were glad to have him to ourselves for awhile and to rediscover the treasure that is uncle Walter. As most of you know, his leading lady of 69 years had most of the lines in their "play"! Bushel and a Peck...Karen
A kind word, a quiet smile and an unexpected joke--Uncle Walter had it all.
We will always remember… the glint in his eye and the warmth of his smile. –the Zils Family
No matter how busy he was, Mr. Bess would always take a moment to say hello with a warm and caring smile and for that simple reason I am saddened by his passing.
Walter will be greatly missed, we were lucky enough to have shared his and Shirly's 50th wedding anniversary. Many rocking chair memories as "Pop" would always say. All the good times of working with him at Peterson for many, many years! Thad & Madilynn Carroll
We are so sorry to hear of Pop's passing. He was a really great guy. We never did find him a Cat's Eye Marble like the one he lost as a kid in the flood! Please know our thoughts and prayers are with the whole Bess family. Keith & Samantha
