  9. Very sad news. We became acquainted with Walter as he was our “contact” whenever we encountered a swarm of bees in our yard. It was fascinating to watch him capture those bees! Through conversation we discovered we shared an interest in trees and wildlife. He would stop by now and then to look at the pawpaws, the cucumber tree, etc., or just pass some time discussing our local area. I would see him driving the country roads, probably with no particular destination. He will be missed. We will miss him.
