Dear Walt…we spent so much time together at your pride and joy, ZacKit Electronics in Vallejo. I remember when John asked me to start my employment there and later he assisted me in getting a partnership agreement with Zack for the Sacramento store. Every time I returned to Vallejo, I would stop in if just to say hello. I was so pleased that you did such a wonderful job there after your tenure with the US Navy. Sorry for my delay in discovering this news of your passing. I have now relocated to Provence in France where I can live out my life. I know you are flying with the angels, soaring high and mighty…

Dear Dorothy, we have such lovely memories of our cruise with you and Walter on the Maasdam from Boston to Boston. Walter was such a genuine, warm and positive person. He was an inspiration to both of us as Tom is going through similar experiences. He always made such positive encouragement in his Christmas notes. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday. Love, Carol and Tom
