Dear Walter, Carol and Family,
I was so shocked when I received the message that Natalie had died. Please accept my very deepest sympathy. She was certainly one of my very favorite people. I can't imagine the homecoming she is having right now with our Lord and Savior and the other love of her life, Gene! My greatest remembrance is playing cards with Gene and Natalie. Gene's favorite line was, "shut-up and deal"! Natalie would just giggle everytime he said that! Then one Sunday as I was playing the prelude at church, Gene came up to me, bent over to whisper in my ear and said..."just shut-up and deal!" I thought I was going to fall off the bench laughing at him! What a great set of parents. in-laws, and grandparents you had. They hold a special place in my heart and my remembrance! With love, Noreen Rivers

Natalie will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and the congregation of Walker Church. We worked the Christmas Stocking Fund shopping with her and Gene--shopping after first going to Krispy Kreme for coffee and donuts. Her expertise at the church suppers will be missed also. She was a quiet pleasant lady, and it was our pleasure to know her. She is with her Lord and Savior and her beloved Gene.
