Dear Lucille and Family, I have so many fun and fond memories of times spent with you and Walter. Pastor Ed loved all of you so much! The two of them certainly were able to give one another a big hug in heaven and Walter could tell Ed all about the latest Salvation Army, Delmont, and family news! This is a big loss to your family and to Delmont and surrounding communities. Walter was a force...filled with caring for those in need. He was amazing! What a great leader, but doer at the same time. His joy and caring was contagious! Love and prayers around you, Louise (Pastor Louise Bastille)
