My Prayers are with the family of Tony Walker.

My deepest condolences to the family. I am just seeing the obituary, or I would have come to the funeral. My Dad, John Jenkins was Aunt Ag's brother, and he loved Buddy and Tony like little brothers. Buddy and Tony ran into the church, right before Dad's funeral service in 1999, and begged my mom to let them put a fifth of whiskey in the coffin. The last time I saw Tony was at Aunt Ag's funeral. We will continue to pray for his beloved family.
