What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day,one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we began to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. Author Unknown In memory if a life so beautifully lived and a heart so beautifully lived. Everytime I saw you I hugged you, told you I loved you. Wish I had one more time.... I will miss you my friend.
- Angela Adams

I have been Wally's patient for many years. He, Adah and Morgan always welcomed me not only as a patient but also as a friend. His kind and caring manner was often my best medicine, and I'll always remember him for that. I pray that God will comfort, strengthen and guide the family during this difficult time. He is gone but never forgotten. I am so sorry for your loss.

My husband Jerry Bruce and I were his patients and friend since 1981. Wally was such a kind and caring doctor and a good friend. When Jerry passed away in 2005 Wally was one of the first ones to call. I will always remember how genuinely sorry he was for my loss. I was in to see him last month and left with my hug. Always a hug and a word of encouragement. My heart hurts for this precious family.
