Romaine, My heart breaks for you, as you maneuver your way over the next days and months. Your dad led such a wonderful life, leaving so many treasured memories for you and your sister to relish for years to come. The music from the ‘rat pack’, the love story of your mom and dad, the viewfinder photo ❤️ and their never ending love for you two. I’ll continue to be here for our talks, and when things aren’t like “budda”, know that we’ll find joy in knowing “The best is yet to come” my sister.

Romaine and Monique - I am so sorry for your loss. Your parents were such a big part of my childhood, and I have many fond memories of swimming in your pool, having fun at one of their luaus and just walking up the path to see who was home. They always welcomed me with kindness. Thinking of you.

Dear Monique and Dear Romaine. It was always the highlight of a the trip down to VA Beach to visit my sister because it would always mean you'd get to see Walt and Claire and the both of you. He would always have bread baking and greet you with a fantastic smile on his face. He will be missed. Rhett

Romaine and Monique, Walter will live on in our hearts and memories as a loving and giving man who was always there to lend a helping hand to us, whether it was gardening, cooking, fishing, or even babysitting. We treasure the friendship he and Claire provided and will always remember them together.

Monique and Romaine, I am so sorry to hear this sad news of the loss of your father. He was such a sweet man to me growing up and was always kind, and loved my crazy antics. He never judged me and we became fb friends and shared stories and photos. I feel very fortunate that you invited Paul and I to have dinner with both your parents a few years ago. I know Claire is with him and he will always be watching after you both. Thinking of you

I had many great times with Walt, but my favorites would have to be the times he and I went fishing together. I loved Walt like a son because that the way he always treated me. I will forever miss him. My condolences to his daughters, my sisters. I love you both and am always here for you.
