Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Although I did not know Mallory I have heard about what a wonderful person she was over the last few years from my daughter Keli, my son in law Adam, and my grandchildren Avery, and Aaron Bunch, who were not just cousins but good friends as well and I know she will be missed greatly.

Walter I am so heartbroken for you my friend, your family. May the love of friends and family bring you some kind of comfort and peace during this most difficult time in your life. May God bless you and family during the days, months and years ahead as you struggle with the reasoning of this tragedy, let God be your comforter and guide. I’m here if you need anything. I love you Walter and I’m praying for you..
