Merry Christmas, angel. I frequently look at your pictures, and for a brief moment I'm able to relive the complete and absolute joy you brought to each and every day. You continue to be a part of each day as you're a permanent fixture in my thoughts, my heart, and in the memories and hearts of all who loved you. God bless you and God bless your family- today and always.

I still hear your voice when I close my eyes. My mind knows you've moved on and beyond, yet my heart still looks for you in all things. True friendship never dies, and that bond is eternally solidified in this heart. A sweeter miracle I've never known, and I must thank God for you.

What I miss most is the way you made everything beautiful- like a prolific artist painting brilliant color onto an otherwise mundane canvas. Since you've been gone, life has reverted to black and white...but I always thank God for you. Happy Birthday, my dearest and best friend.

Warmest wishes to a friend so true, the joy in this heart and the wonder that is you. The tears are abundant, the pain won’t relent; the sorrow is redundant and memories frequent—a bar room bet, a joke you’d make, the New York Jets and Blackout Cake. From Kung Fu Fighting to Beethoven’s Fifth, such glorious dichotomies in you did exist. The hysterical laughter you’d always bring around, to conversations more drastic, so deep and profound. Though saint you were not—don’t think I forgot— folks cut you off on the Parkway…oh what words they got! But that never phased me, since I knew you were crazy 😉- just one of countless laughs you gave me. Truth be told, I was in awe of you—the perseverance with which you’d do all you’d do—I’m a better person today because of you. The kindness you showed the day we met is something I will never ever forget. While your journey here may have come to an end, you will always be my very best friend. A sweeter soul I’ve never met, and I must thank God for you. Merry Christmas, angel.

Happy Thanksgiving, my dearest and best friend. Your absence weighs heavier than the heart and soul can bear. A better man I will never know, and I must thank God for you.

Walter, you are very much like the sun. In a given moment, it seems as though there’s only minimal collective consciousness of the fact that the sun truly sustains all that lives, breathes, and grows. It isn’t until the sun has set that one may stop to ponder the stark contrast of the darkness now left in its place; the incredulity that mere hours before, one was perfectly surrounded by its warmth, light, and magnificence; marvel at its ability to surround one’s body and fill the entirety of one’s soul with the warmest of all embraces that emanates from so high above; find humility in its enduring perseverance to reach each and every one of life’s vastly expansive forms. The sun is indiscriminate in all that it touches; knows not one’s color or convictions, past or present, strengths or imperfections. It shines in its unrivaled glory every day, every day, every single day.

Walter, I couldn’t sing a sweeter song than you. What words come even remotely close to doing justice to the beautiful, beautiful person you are? My god, sweet friend, you are the most beautiful person I’ve ever known! You’re the joy in each day; the laughter and pure joy in in my heart….in everyone’s heart. You always wanted the smiles, Walter. You LIVED for the smiles, and you’d stop at nothing to elicit a laugh. That’s indicative of your unique nature-- the fact that another person’s laughter was practically currency to you. Other people may have derived some amusement from that, but you, Walter, could literally subsist on it. We stumbled upon each other’s paths quite incidentally. But I thank you, I thank you, I THANK YOU for finding me. I’m still in awe of the pure joy you managed to instill in my life, dearest friend. I had actually forgotten what that was, and then there you were. You never gave up, you never stopped trying, and I’m so thankful to you for that. You were there every day, without fail—rain or shine, for better or worse, you were ALWAYS there, Walter. Our endless laughter, the mutual joy, your keenly accurate intuition, the safety that your mere presence would bring… it’s priceless. Being close to you actually felt like coming home, and I was so beyond blessed for that.

Your absence is the most profound sorrow my heart has ever known. It leaves an inescapable heaviness in its wake that I continually struggle to reconcile. If you were faced with the choice of allowing the world to remember you for one thing, and absolutely nothing else—I know you would choose to be remembered for the undying, endless love of your daughter. You loved her, leaps and bounds beyond anything in this world, and I know- just as God knows, that was your most endearing, defining attribute. I wish you limitless peace and happiness as well as an infinitely enduring love that NEVER forgets. I pray that your family will find comfort and solace knowing that you are now and forever will be their guardian angel. For life.

Until we meet again, my dearest and best friend.
AJ

Walter you will be part of my fondest childhood memories on west 3rd st. In Brooklyn. From the day I met you I loved you. I am saddened that you left us so soon but am glad that I know we will see each other again one day. Until then you will be missed my friend. Heaven is a better place than it was because they have you there now and I'm sure your smile and laughter is a blessing to everyone there and you are in great company with Jesus Mom and many that are enjoying seeing you again.. To my little sister Cathy and the loved ones of Walter also, my prayers and condolences but most of all something encouraging:
Walter is somewhere right now that Is beyond what we can imagine because Jesus promised:
In my Fathers house are many mansions if it weren't so I would have told you; I go to prepare a place for you that where I am there you will be also.
Walter enjoy your new house!!! I am coming over when I get there to see you my friend..
I'll miss you!!
Love Greg
