There are no words that can make the loss of a loved one easier for those left behind. I pray that there is some comfort in knowing that Sandy Walker was a force, an inspiration and an institution here in the City of York. His every struggle and challenge overcome had a point and a purpose and this community is better because of him and because of his family. Wishing you love as you carry on his legacy together.

There's going to be a time when the only thing that will get I thru the tuff time's us the love that Family has for one another... Ur Dad and Family was the first we meet when we moved out West an he always showed us mad Love.. It's going to be hard not seeing him any more but I'll remember all the good times an great memories that were shared. .. Wish y'all the best at this tuff time. .
