Beautiful person and family. Lucky to know all of you!

Mary and family,
I am sorry for your loss. I knew Walt as an usher and a kind, caring man at St. Pius, who greeted me by name weekly. I would see Walt at various Masses at other churches and was always glad to see his smile. Imagine my surprise in reading his obituary to find all his other wonderful life achievements! I knew he was a special man and his presence on this earth will be missed. It is comforting for me to know that Walt was greeted in heaven by many other spectacular souls! May God keep you in the palm of His hand and may he rest in peace.

Dear Mary and family I can not begin to know your pain. I can tell you how much you and Walt touched my life and I will miss his gentle and kind words and that wonderful smile of his. my prayers are with you all. God bless

Lore, Jim, Emily, Mrs. McManus, and all children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren - I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. McManus once during Parents Day weekend at NWMSU as Lore and I were fellow Journalism Majors and on-air Anchors for KXCV (yes, we shared more than a few newscasts and reporting responsibilities as she was Janis Jones' and my predecessor in the role of City Editor for KXCV, and co-anchoring/covering the Braddyville, Iowa tornado of March 29, 1979 - an F4). My heart is heavy and I am saddened by the loss of the family patriarch - a fine man. Know that I was impressed with him when he shook my hand in the Broadcast Services Center 35 years ago, and know that he - along with his beautiful wife, Mary - raised wonderful children (having only met and worked with Lore, I can only imagine how wonderful Lore's siblings are based on what I know through experience working with a kind soul and Jim - her "one and only"). May Jesus wrap you in his arms, and comfort you now and forever more . . . I care.

A True Friend, Mr Walt McManus
He lit up my life in some very dark times in my life. I'll never forget Walt. Love to Mary and all the family.
And I have some treasures that he gave to me from other countries. Sincerely,
