Mr. Wally was a wonderful man and such a joy to see each Sunday when I was able to attend Brookview Church. He will be greatly missed.

I was fortunate to have worked with him while he was with the City of Cambridge. He was always so caring and kind to everyone he met. You are now with the Angels playing music...

It is hard to imagine that you are gone. We certainly had lots of fun times growing up together on Hoopers Island. You were blessed with musical talent and all of us who heard you play will remember how you delighted in music. God bless.

I will miss you dear friend! You always had a way to make me sing and sound good as you played! Herman is glad to have you in heaven to sing with the angels!
