Deepest sympathies to Kim and Walter. I worked with Danny for many years. I just heard today about his passing and your Mom. I hope that wonderful memories can bring you comfort. God bless.

Kim and Walter, I am sorry for your loss. I hunted and fished with your Dad many times and it was always enjoyable. He was very proud of both of you and when he mentioned you all he would have a smile on his face due to the happiness you all gave him. If I can ever do anything for either of you please let me know.
