God speed Walt. My dear friend from third grade onward into our adult lives. We shared many happy times, double dates, nights at Big Boys, drive-in movies and just hanging out and discussing a variety of topics into the night. Everyone was always welcome at your Brighton Street home where we also spent time with Nan and Rocky. It was great! Thanks for your friendship and the many fond memories Duke. I will miss you.
