I wish to express once more the sorrow I feel due to Walter's death. He was such a wonderful student in my Foreign Relations class and I'm sure he enjoyed the class trip to the Georgetown Model United Nations in Washington,DC 1970. What a honor for me to have this bright young man in my class. He has left us too soon. Betty Jordan Phillips(Lewis)

Walter and I were college friends, and we shared an apartment at the University of Georgia during his first year in law school. I have never known a kinder, more compassionate person. Though I moved away, Walter has helped my parents with legal advice over the years, so we have kept loosely in touch. It was an honor to have known him. You have my deepest sympathies.

Mrs. Leggett , My prayers and thoughts are with you and the family. I was truly blessed when my son entered Covenant Academy in the 9th grade and we met you. Not knowing a few years later I would meet your husband when I was referred to him to handle some legal matters. He was a wonderful person and I can not imagine going on with this case without him, but I feel he has properly prepared me to do what needs to be done. We love you!

Mr. Leggett was the nicest man. He had a kind and gentle spirit. He was always pleasant when he came into the Clerk's Office (Bibb Superior Court). I would ask him how "The PRESIDENT" was doing. He would say that his son was doing fine. Mr. Leggett will really be missed. My prayers and condolences go out to the family.

With Deepest Regards

Mary Jane and family, I was so saddened to hear about Walter's death. How my heart aches for all of you. I lost my husband barely six months ago, and Walter handled all the legal affairs for me. He didn't fit the stereotype for he was such a soft-spoken, kind and gentle man. Having so recently experienced unexpected loss, I know there are no words that will soften the blow right now, but take comfort in knowing that Walter is with his Lord. I'll be praying for you now and in the days to come.

Praying for your family at this time. My grandmother, Eleanor Smallwood, knows Binky from when Ms. Flanders (her Mom) was in Bel Arbor Nursing Home. Please send Binky my grandmother's condolences. My grandmother is 90 now and Ms. Flanders was my favorite patient when I was a little girl and hung out at Bel Arbor. God Bless You All

Mary Jane & Family,
It has been way too long since we've seen one another but Walter tried to assist us last year with guardianship issues. When he had to decline due to conflict of interest I had never seen anyone so humble & saddened that he wasn't able to help us.

It was such a shock to hear of this accident but we have to hold on to the faith that in God there are no accidents. We will lift you up in prayer and know that He will comfort and heal your broken hearts. Sincerely, Brenda & Stan

Mary Jane and Family, I am stunned to learn about Walter's untimely and tragic death. Walter and I were roommates all through college at UGA and close friends during high school. He was one of the groomsmen in my first marriage. I am not saying anything you do not already know from long beautiful years with him, but I think Walter was one of the kindest, warmest and best friends one could ever have. I so deeply regret your loss.
Love, Joe Pittman

Dear Mrs. Leggett and Family - I was absolutely shocked to hear of Walter's very untimely passing. Walter was one of my very favorite lawyers during my time working in the Bibb County Courthouse. He was genuinely a gentleman and a scholar. He was very soft-spoken, but tenacious and always prepared. He was highly intelligent and an excellent lawyer. And, he was my friend. I am so sorry that our community has lost Walter.
