Best wishes to all of Wally's family.

How does one say goodbye to a loved one? Before I answer this question I would like to share some of my memories about Uncle Wally. Uncle Wally always knew how to make someone smile; he himself was always wearing one. A lot og my memories are from the cottage. When I was little I was always getting into trouble for getting sticky when eating popsicles or berries. Uncle Wally would always get me out of trouble by smearing popsicles or berries on his face. We were each others messy buddies. Everyday was a fun filled adventure at the cottage with him. Uncle Wally would always wake up early in the morning, never wanting to miss a minute of daytime. He would go to buddies where he would pick up his newspaper, and come back to plan our day together, although he sometimes had to wait because I was a late sleeper. He always tried to to something different, whether it was taking me to the candy store to buy those candy cigarettes, which my parents never wanted me to buy. To the petting zoo or just down the road to Dick's to pick up some juicy night crawlers that we would later use to fish with. We would then head down to the pontoon where we would sit and fish with the night crawlers or sometimes-even a hotdog. Uncle Wally was always spoiling my dinner with those werther original candies we would eat while fishing. He taught me how to tie my first fishing knot, and how to take the fish off the hook. After fishing we would hop on the golf cart and take a spin around the lake and into the woods where we would pick berries for dessert later that night. Those berries usually didn't make it back to the cottage. After dinner and when everything the was cleaned up the adults would sit down for a game of poker. You could always find me either sitting on his lap throwing money into the pot or under the table where he would always slip me a few quarters. Other memories are sharing those smae werther originals, while sitting in his den at home, watching the Red Wings play. I would either sit in his lap or on the couch right next to him. When the Wings won, his smile somehow became even bigger. I wish everyone could have seen the smile he had after the Wings won the Stanley cup. Through his smile, his jokes and his words, Uncle Wally could brighten anyone's day. Maybe some of the memories that I have shared with you today are ones that you have also shared with him. Before I end, I want to share one last memory and probably the one that touched me the most. When saying goodbye to Uncle Wally I always saved him for last. He would always tell me that I had to save the best for last. Never would we kiss on the cheek or the lip, instead we rubbed noses. This was his way of saying goodbye. The answer to my beginning question: How do you say goodbye to a loved one? You don't! You remember the memories that warm your heart. From me to you Uncle Wally, I love you, I miss you, and I will see you when I get there. Thanks for all the smiles!
Love Your MESSY BUDDY!

Uncle Wally was the BEST Uncle I've ever known. All us kids just loved him. He teased around with all of us but we all knew he cared about us then. I'll always remember the times growing up when went to the cottage in the summer to go swimming and some of the winters to go sledding. Those were some of the best times! You'll be deeply missed Uncle Wally! Thanx for being such a great Uncle!

Uncle Wally tried to touch all the generations the best he could. He told me something when I was a kid that still stands out strongly in my mind. He said Mark, You're a Fart Smeller, I mean a Smart Feller. Uncle Wally took me to my first RedWings game when I was like ten or eleven years old at Olympia Stadium. They tore the stadium down a few years after when the Redwings moved to the Joe Louis Arena. It was free hockey stick night to kids 12 and younger. I still vividly remember that day. I also remember all the times that we went to the cottage in the summer and most winters. The first time I ever fished was with Uncle Wally. One summer I went up with just the guys to go fishing when I was a child. It was me, Grandpa, Uncle Wally and Uncle Wally's family friend. You get a good feeling when you recall times like that. I'm sure you have many good memories as well...

You'll be missed Uncle Wally
