Nancy & family, I just discovered Walter's passing and sorry Dorothy & I missed the funeral. We have many good memories with Walter at OT and sure miss his teasing and laugh. We have a great memory when Walter played Santa Claus. He drove out to my house in Caroon Farms in Great Bridge dressed up and knocked on my door. I believe my son was 4 years old. When I opened the door, Walter did the Santa Claus act HO HO HO and my son said, "you are not Santa Claus you are Mr. Pope!!" We rolled with laugher because he did look like Santa Claus. My son recognizing Walter in his Santa Claus suit was a testament to Walter's personality and influence on my son the few times I brought him to OT. Great memories. We will miss him and our condolences to you and your family. Larry, Dorothy & Rumsey family.

Mrs. Pope, My prayers are for you and your family at this time. Mr. Pope was a wonderful, fun-loving, caring, and great friend. He enjoyed children and our POV staff. I enjoyed his sense of humor and will treasure "Santa Pope's" memory always. Love you and thinking of you. Karen Tyree

God bless the whole Pope Family. Walter was such a positive force in Job's Daughters. He was a true Christian gentleman and a perfect person to whom the girls could look for guidance and support. So many of us adults looked to him for that guidance, too. Though we may not have seen him as often as the years passed, we will truly miss Walter. Our sincere condolences to Nancy and family.

Whenever I think of Walter I smile. Walter's love for Job's Daughters could never be questioned. He could always get a smile or laugh from the most serious daughter. RIP Walter we will miss your smiling face at session.

Dinker was a great guy in High School and well thought of. I pray for his family and the friends he left behind. I knew him before we were in high school. We lived in the same area.

Dinker Pope was a senior at Cradock when I was a freshman. He was quarterback on our much admired football team and a hero to me. I have known him through the long years since then and he has always remained an admired hero...a person who lived a good life that deserved admiration. When I learned of his death, it was devastating and we were not close. It was as if a piece of me was gone. My deepest sympathy and condolence is extended to his family in grief at this time. May he rest in peace.

To Mom Nancy, Beth, Susan, and Dink, I remember a wonderful man full of life and love. I'll never forget him coming to our home when we were first being investigated and initiated in Job's Daughters. I am praying for you and mourning his loss along with many others whose lives he blessed. During this time of sorrow, may God bless you and ease your suffering. With love and sympathy, Jenny Marker Richards, PHQ Bethel #42 (Jun - Dec 84)
