Walter's brothers Clifford and Lester were my Dad's cousins (Lewis Allin). His Dad Theodore married my Grandmother Frances' sister Jessie Larson. My family visited Sen. Mondale in DC in 1966, when I was 10. I thought ALL Senators were upstanding, well-intentioned persons of conscience, like him! What a high bar he set. Unlike many politicians, he never dis-illusuioned me. Thank you, Fritz, for everything!
