Guest Book Highlights

September 11, 2018 "To the Waite Family; I would like to offer my sincere condolences on the passing on such a fine actor. His performance in the Walton series as the patriarch John Walton was outstanding. In addition to this , I also admired his role in Roots as Mr. Slater where he played the ship's slave master.
He will be greatly missed, but I know if he was saved he went to be with our lord Jesus Christ..
