I'm so sorry to hear of Walter's passing. He was a part of my family when I was growing up and he was like a special uncle. He took me for my driving test, photographed me before my proms, and came to my first Thanksgiving dinner after I was married. For years he came for dinner every Tuesday night after tennis and was part of our Christmas tree decorating tradition. He made the best pastries at Christmas. Even though he was always watching his weight, he once stayed for extra dessert because without company around I would have gotten in trouble for something I did. One of his favorite sayings was "discretion is the better part of valor." These are just a few of my memories of him.
