Tami & all the “Burt” family - I only got to visit Walt & Mae once in Sandpoint, but it was as if I’d known them & your whole family all my life. The family is welcoming & friendly. Grampy always had a huge smile on his face & a chore to do. He had the best sense of humor & always had a quick witted comeback for any situation. He was so proud of his apple orchard & garden. But most of all he was proud of his family & he loved them dearly. I know we will all miss Grampy ... but we have many warm thoughts of him to cherish forever.

We were so sad to learn of Walt's passing. He was kind, gentle, funny and loving. He was a wonderful friend and neighbor to the whole Rosenboom family. We loved taking a tour of his orchard to see how many varieties of apples were growing on the same tree. One year, we were very surprised to see a carpeted orchard! Walt's way to take care of the weeds. Our boys loved to see all of the projects and unique buildings that he had devised. Our visits to Sandpoint won't be quite the same without Walt. Mae, you and all of the kids are in our hearts and prayers. Sending our love to all of you. Butch and Kathy

My sympathy on the loss of your father/grandfather. Walt and Mae were always so very kind to my mother, Val, while they were friends and neighbors at Luther Park. He was a wonderful man and your families are all a great tribute to him.

Walt became a friend to me after Mae and I started our visitation ministry at First Lutheran. Up until then, he was only known to me as that man who always had something funny to say during, before, or after church. I came to know him more fully as a person in the several years that my friendship with Mae developed. There is so much I could say, so many good memories to share. One of my fondest memories is sharing a beer with him after eating lunch with them one day! Actually, the three of us shared one beer. It was like a communion of the highest nature. I pray for your peace, Mae, knowing that Walt is well-cared for where he is. You both are such blessings to First Lutheran, to the Luther Park Community, and to the entire county. What faith! What a family you raised! You and Walt were steadfast and loyal in your love of God and family and country. I am blessed to have known you both! Sharon Nale, Plain City Ohio
