Walt was a good neighbor, He and his family lived on the Pennsylvania side and my family lived on the Maryland side. Both of us owned land in Maryland and Pennsylvania. I remember when my son, Jason, was one year old, I pulled him in his wagon up thru our field in the fall, to ask Walt if I could get some apples from him, since he had a young apple orchard started. Walt said sure and walked over to Jason and opened the bottom of his basket he was picking apples in and left them roll right in Jason's lap. I asked Walt how much I owed him and he said "for a neighbor nothing at all, I hope you all enjoy eating them". Not sure why, but a few years later Walt pulled all the apple trees out. We talked in church, also at chuch council meetings, and in the woods, he was a fine man and I will miss him.

Lois, Brian, and Brad and families, you have our sympathy and I, (we) will be praying for you.
