A Thank You from Stick Walters Family
The family of William Gerald Walters, Jr. would like to thank each and every one of you for the many kindnesses shown during this last year after Jerry suffered his stroke in September 2008. He was making such progress and we felt he was going to be okay, but that wasn’t meant to be. God had other plans and on September 23, 2009, called him home.
Jerry loved the fire department and looked forward to hearing from fellow firemen, many of whom were retired like him. Our thanks to you for always staying in touch with him and encouraging him. Thank you for your visits to the hospital, telephone calls, and your prayers during this very difficult time. They will never be forgotten.
We cannot say enough about the honor guard and this special tribute to him. Our hearts were touched by the beautiful ceremony at the cemetery, the folding of the flag and presentation to his wife, Judy, the tolling of the bells, and let’s not forget the fire truck and rescue vehicle standing at attention as we entered the cemetery. This will remain with us forever.
May God bless each of you and keep you safe as you work to protect your fellow man.
Again, I thank you for posting this for us.
Diana Woods, Jerry’s sister
