Dear Waltmann family, please accept my sincere sympathy.  May you look forward to the time when the Bible says that “(God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.  The former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).  I hope that this promise and loving memories bring you comfort.
