Sandy and Terry,

I am very sorry to hear about Walt. He was very special to all of us. But as we all know those three are together again Walt, Don and Frank. My favorite recollection was the story of the trip to the mountains in winter to work on the cabin. You could see the roadway through the floor of the Jeep. All dad and Frank could do was laugh. They had great times hunting. 
Love, Alta, Rise and Randy Perry
