    Pa and Ma Walker have impacted my life in so many ways. In my heart they will always be my grandparents. Their guidance and love has helped to inspired me to be the person I have become today. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Walker family during this sad time. I pray you all find refuge in knowing that we will see Pa again in heaven. I appreciate how you all opened your arms and welcomed Amber and me as if we were your own grandchildren. Some of my most precious childhood memories were made spending time with you all. I love each and everyone of you and know that my prayers and heart is with you always.

    Long ago, the righteous man Job raised this question: “If an able-bodied man dies can he live again?” In answer to that question he said:”You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” This is the hope for, Mr. Walker, as well. (Job 14:14, 15) I am very sorry for your loss. May God’s Word seek to comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl

    So many of my childhood memories are wrapped up in the love of this dear man and his family (my family). I will forever cherish time spent with Uncle Gordy and Aunt Monnie. He was a gentle, loving man who loved his God and his family. We are better for having known him and he is now and forever resting in the arms of his Lord ~karen
