Orline and Family, our most sincere condolences on the passing of Wally. May you find the strength you need to see you through this difficult time. It has been many many years but I can still remember meeting Wally at the Saan Store on 10th Street, steps away from the Modern Market in Prince Albert. Lots of great stories were shared!

Orline and Family: our deepest sympathies, I will remember Wally as a Fighter - he fought his illnesses with great determination. I will also remember Wally as a 'Man with Connections' - Wally seemed to know what was happening in Weyburn, long before anyone else... it was humbling to occasionally have the opportunity to refer to his memory and contacts. Rest in Peace Wally.
