    How many special memories I have of my childhood years spending time
    with you my sweet, strong- spirited Aunt Nancy. You were such a supportive, ever-present
    strong tower during my formative years. You shared great words of
    encouragement and wisdom with me in moments we shared alone. You were one of
    the loudest voices that carried the message of our rich Church of God
    Heritage, and for that foundation of faith, I am forever grateful. One of
    the last times I saw you, (just a few short weeks ago in the middle
    of Wal-Mart), you reminded me of how special I am to you and how much you love
    me. You shared how important it is that I never allow anyone to
    mistreat me, and while life is not easy, I must be strong, realize my
    value, and keep Jesus in my heart. As an adult, I often asked myself
    “Who created Who? Did Uncle Walter create the strong woman that my Aunt
    Nancy became or did Aunt Nancy create the strong Marine that everyone knew he
    was?” Now with clear vision I see, it was God who created you
    both by putting you two together as husband and wife. As a three
    stranded cord, (You, Uncle Walter & Jesus) together you
    touched many, many lives in indescribable, and memorable ways. I will
    always remember your example in the midst of struggles, and the victories
    you have won. Now you join the great cloud of witnesses; whom I
    believe include our loved ones past. Cheer us on… I can
    hear you cheering for us to finish our race well! It’s hard to believe you
    are gone, but in God’s time we will see you again. Rest in Peace, well
    done good and faithful servant; it’s time for your reward
