To the Sykes family, May God Bless you and keep you in your time of need. I am so sorry to hear of Walter's passing.

I am deeply sorry to hear that this wonderful young man has passed away. Walter was an absolute gentlemen. A professional officer with a tremendous heart. I saw him a few months ago at his part time job and we laughed and talked about working at the jail. I am so sorry to hear that he has passed. I will miss his kind heart and conversation.

To the Sykes Family:
"Correctional Officer's Prayer"
Lord, when it's time to go inside
That place of steel & stone
I pray that you will keep me safe,
So i won't walk alone
Help me to do my duty
Please watch me on my rounds.
Amongst those perilous places,
& slamming steel doors sounds.
God keep my fellow officers
Well & free from harm.
Let them know I'll be there too,
Whenever there's alarm.
Above all when i walk my beat,
No matter where i roam.
Let me go back whence i came,
To family & home.
"Home In Heaven"
His work on this earth in done.
Walter is at home now "Home In Heaven"

To Will and Family,
Although my presence is far, my prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time of loss. May the Lord bless and keep you in time of sorrow, reminding you of the special memories of Walter, and the gift of shared love. May you feel the Lord with you, walking besides you in loneliness, taking your hand in the hardest times and carrying you through each moments of grief. My prayers are with you all today, and in the days to come...Amen.
