My heart and prayers go out to my T-Shirley and my cousins Myesha & Rhonda and all the grandchildren as well. I remember my Uncle Walter as this strong rock/ anchor for the Smith family. This foundation will be greatly missed, however he lives in my T Shirley, Rhonda and Myesha. His examples will live on and be shared with all the grandchildren and future generations. I remember his old school style of keeping us all in check with his firmness and no nonsense personality. He will be missed. I love you guys and my condolences goes out to the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Walter was such a thoughtful and kind man. He would lend a hand, even when not asked. On one occasion, Kevin was trying to mow the lawn with a leg injury and often had to stop to rest. During one of his rest sessions, we all of a sudden hear a mower in the yard and look out to see Walter in his beloved rider mowing our entire lawn. He noticed Kevin struggling and came to lend a hand. This is just one of many times Walter came to our rescue for one thing or another. We love you Walter and will miss you greatly. Rest easy and in peace. Love, Kevin and Jill

My deepest sympathy to Walt’s family. I was lucky to have been able to work with him at Go Riteway. He always had a smile, loved to make you laugh and always had something kind to say. When you saw or talked to Walt, he instantly made a bad day much better. He will be missed.

To Shirley and the entire Smith family, There are no words to adequately describe how Evg. Christine Mitchell, I and our family feel after learning of Brother Walter’s passing. He was truly one of God’s best! He loved his family and his church and I know he took great pride in serving the church and others. His physical absence will be hard but I am thankful for the blessing of memories and stories and family that will allow his spiritual presence and legacy to live on in our hearts. Please know we are praying for you as you walk through this valley and I pray you experience God’s presence each day as you live in this new normal. Rev. Carla Mitchell
