Our beloved HealingWell member and friend Walter Whited has moved on. Folks here knew him as War Eagle...Walt. He died Friday after a 6 year battle with prostate cancer.
His wife was not able to locate my phone number but she posted this on my CaringBridge website this morning. She was at a service and could not come to the phone when another of my great Alabama friends called me. I'm certain we'll talk to her tonight and I will extend the love we all had for her wonderful husband...
Please forgive me for sending you this news on Walt via Caringbridge but for the life of me I can't find your cell phone number or your e-mail. Walt went to Heaven this past Friday. He was talking up to 3 hours prior to his leaving this world. Tony he even cracked a few jokes on that day. You know Walt always the upbeat man, well he went out making others smile. I won't go into all of the details now but when you get a chance,please call me and we will share our memories of my sweet husband.
"But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as EAGLES
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint"
Walt's favorite verse...We love you buddy...My prayers are for Johnnie, Sam, Wayne, Beck...and his huge list of friends that they have peace during their mourning.
