yet another one forgotten

Walter is another one of our original seven on our first T-shirt. No way to forget him. Any one who really knows us and what we are doing would know better than to say he was forgotten. Shame on you for even suggesting it. We are actively trying to find any family member he might have. As far as we know, he has none, but we still keep looking and asking.

You know, it's really ignorant for someone to imply that any of these people are forgotten. Walter, for example, you say he has no family that you can find, yet you are doing everything that you can to help solve his case even without family members pushing you to do so. I'm proud of all of you, and I'm proud to say that I live in a community where some people actually still care enough to do stuff like this. You all should take one second to just pat yourselves on the back, but then it's back to work, lol. Thank you for everything that you do and for the difference that you make in these victim's and their family's lives. You all are my heroes.

I got your card from the fair, and my heart is breaking tonight looking at your website. I wish I had the tips that could let each family have closure. I will forever keep my eyes open and my eyes listening for any information on all the victims.

I have heard so many rumors about Walter, that I do hope one day we truly know what happened. I did not know the man, nor did I ever meet him. Allthough we did live on the same road.

I would have to say that I think this website is a great thing, and that you are getting the word out there to help all you can. It shows people do still care, and that is nice.

Water has a son named Art Valentine, he wasn't close to his Father but hasn't forgotten him. Art lives in Columbus OH. I just found your site and marked it as a favorite so I can keep up with the many sad cases. My heart goes out to all the families. God Bless you for all you are doing.

I remember Walt from when I was a kid, there was 3 Bars in negley that he would frequent, He had a Dog named Clyde and you could always tell what Bar he was in from Clyde sitting by the door. Walt was a very decent and smart guy,You could never pass him without having a conversation with him. I hope they find who killed him

Dear God,
Thank you for looking down on me,
Thank you for helping me be strong,
Thank you for listening to my prayer -tonight,
And forgive me for my wrongs,
Fore I know that I have sinned,
I have a loving family,
Which I appreciate so much,
I know you're keeping them all safe,
Even the ones I can not touch,
But if home is where the heart is,
And love is in the heart,
I know that they're in heaven,
And we're never far apart.

By, Felicia Ballard Benton
