Never a time did his Irish eyes not smile. Truly, I considered Walt my dear โ€˜ole friend. We always shared a good belly laugh or a story or two each time I stopped by the garage. He spoiled me and the dogs with Dum Dum suckers, cookies or doggie biscuits on every visit. He had the biggest heart and I was humbled by his love for animals ~strays! He was very kind to my family. I hope if angels get the chance, thereโ€™s a pretty blue corvette with Waltโ€™s name on it waiting in Heaven. He was like finding a four leaf clover here in Shinnston. I was lucky to know he was there and blessed by him sincerely. Prayers for his family and Kimmie. I will miss him. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ€โ˜˜๏...ธ๐ŸŒนRead more
