    Wally and I worked with each other at Great Plains Container. We hunted and fished together and made a lot of unforgettable memories. He was my friend for life. I found out that he was a born again christian. That made me very happy because that meant we shell know and enjoy our friendship forever, Thank you Jesus! He ended his race and got a crown of life! To his family: be sad for a little while and then follow his lead! He lived life with vigor, he would want that for his family. I will miss him a lot. Now I have to find someone to help me fix my computers. He would think that is funny! Thank you for being a blessing in my life Wally. Your friend Mike
