Many of you know I have wonderful friends in Alabama. And many of you know the War Eagle and I are loving friends!
Walt has received some disturbing news and I just wanted to spread the word. He updated his blog today and I'll link it below and let you read it in his words. I know him well, and I know he will be grateful for wells wishes, warm thoughts, and prayers for him and his wonderful wife Johnnie. Walt came to us here in 2007 and brought such a beautiful warm personality. He has cheered many of us up with his humor and faithfulness. I haven't spoke to him today, but I probably will. Ruth and I have had the blessings to meet him and Johnnie and stay in their home for a few days. A beautiful home, a beautiful wife, and beautiful heart, and mostly a beautiful man....
Peace and the Lords love with you, Walter!
