  • Dear Linda and the Boulet and Lavoie Families. I offer my condolences on the early passing of Walter. I remember him well as he was a freind and companion to Ian, and from my frequent visits in the Boulet home. A nice young kid-he is remembered well. He looks like he grew into such a nice man. A ship sails and I stand watching it till it fades on the horizon. Someone at my side says, "He is gone." Gone where? Gone from my sight. That is all. He is just as large as when I saw him. The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in him. And just at that moment, when someone at your side says, " He is gone" There are others who are watching Him coming. And other voices take up the glad shout. "Here he comes!" That is what dying is. An horizon and just the limit of our sight. Adapted from ‘The Ship’ by Bishop Brent Remembering Walter and all of you.
