  1. Walter, so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. May God comfort you, your children, your sister-in-law and Wilson’s children as well. Praying for you for comfort and strengthening. It has been a long, long time ago that I last saw you. Please email me if I can be of any help. You’ll have to email me as my wife, Ruth, and I just returned to Cochabamba, Bolivia, South America, where I have been serving as a missionary for over 34 years. God’s best to you, Walter. Allen
