Even through our sadness in the passing of Walter Evans, we and he wish to express this through his own words in lieu of a memorial.
“I believe my being is restored and my pain is now gone. My family and friends near and far, you are welcome to think of me in all of the places we had visits, adventures and fun times.
Share them with your company, know that I am now walking with others who have gone on ahead of me.
There surely will be a comfy chair, a pot of coffee and a campfire with a breathtaking scene to breathe in.”
