Guest Book Highlights

August 31, 2018 "Walter's fascination with poetry and with our great poets of the past was contagious. I spent many happy days with him exchanging views, reciting poems and celebrating at their graves. I was part of his first Dead Poets' Day celebration in Maine, reading Millay's "Ragged Island" at the crack of dawn on the coast with the sun coming up over the island that had been Millay's summer home and later reading "Renascence" in the Camden Public Library. I have missed him and will now continue to miss him for years to come." - Peter Bergman (Pittsfield, MA)
February 23, 2018 "I would like to express my deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort and help in God during this time of mourning." - (Bear, DE)
February 17, 2018 "We extend our sympathy and prayers to the Skold family and Barbara. Our Smith family enjoyed all the great times we shared in Changchun, China. We will never forget his part in the Thanksgiving performance of "Lao Wai, Lao Wai" sung to Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer." Those were good days!" - Daniel & Joanne Smith (Colorado Springs, CO)
February 10, 2018 "Very truly sad for your loss... God bless your brother..." - Douglas Goodis (Miami, FL)
February 09, 2018 "We just learned of Walter's passing. Our hearts are heavy. He was a great and Brilliant man. A thoughtful Father to his children. Our children were in class with both Simon and Wesley. We also enjoyed having them and sins to our house for Young Life Club.
All the Skolds are in our prayers." - Carolyn and Hans Krahn (Freeport)
