Not sure what to say?

Aunt Edna,Wayne Wray and Wendy,

So sorry for your loss my thoughts and prayers are with all of you in this very trying time.

Deb Charette

The Dorcas Ministry of Thomas Terrace Baptist Church wish to express our sympathy to you and your family. We are remembering you in our prayers. Please contact us if we can be of help during this difficult time.

My condolences to Edna and the family. I worked and traveled with Walt when he was at B&W. I will always treasure the dinners and wine we shared during our trips. His obituary was too modest. Walt accomplished a lot. He is one of the few men in this country to be responsible for the initial start-up of two different nuclear power plants. Quite an achievement! I am glad we got together this past year in SC. You are all in our prayers. May he rest in peace. God bless!

Mrs. Abbott, Wray, Wayne, and Wendy and the entire family, we are so sad to hear the news of Mr. Abbott. Your family has been part of my entire life and will seeing him. We are so blessed that we got to see him last September and will always cherish all the memories. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Carolyn & JD

When I was accepted into the US Army Nuclear Power Group in 1961 Captain Walter Abbot was one of my Instructors. I found him to be a good instructor and a very nice person. He would not put up with any horseplay during classes though. I learned a lot from all the instructors I had and I got a good education. My blessings go to his family.
