We are deeply saddened to hear of Walt's death. He was a dear and faithful friend for many years, always keeping in touch with those of us from the "old days." What a memorable person he was! We will miss him.

Dear Nancy, Susie, Laura and Walter, I am so very sorry to hear about Walter. Yours is a wonderful family; perhaps the finest I encountered in my years of teaching. As I met each of you, I was more impressed with the graciousness of the whole family. The school and the community benefited by your presence. Pat Barnes and I often wished that all families could be like “the Dods”. Having those years of Lucas Valley memories is a pleasure for me. Fondly, Bill Malet

Dear Nancy and Family: I attended Northeast High School with Walt, graduating with him in 1955. Just last year we had our 60th Class Reunion and it was such a joy to visit with the both of you and to tell tales of our High School Days. Walt will be dearly missed by all. My love, prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. Joyce A. (Ricketts) Manning

Susie and family, We were so sorry to hear this news from Paul's mother this morning. You are all in are hearts and prayers. The following is a poem that I found when I lost my great-grandma many years ago. I found great comfort in it --I hope you will too.. Love always, Paul and Angela The Rose Beyond the Wall Near a shady wall a rose once grew, Budded and blossomed in God's free light, Watered and fed by the morning dew, Shedding it's sweetness day and night. As it grew and blossomed fair and tall, Slowly rising to loftier height, It came to a crevice in the wall Through which there shone a beam of light. Onward it crept with added strength With never a thought of fear or pride, It followed the light through the crevice's length And unfolded itself on the other side. The light, the dew, the broadening view Were found the same as they were before, And it lost itself in beauties new, Breathing it's fragrance more and more. Shall claim of death cause us to grieve And make our courage faint and fall? Nay! Let us faith and hope receive-- The rose still grows beyond the wall, Scattering fragrance far and wide Just as it did in days of yore, Just as it did on the other side, Just as it will forever-more. by A. L. Frink
