There was a lot of laughter remembering him and the stories we had to tell. A special thanks must go to Jimmy Coats and Marna Docherty, for once words fail me but you know both I and Walter love you. I would like to thank Kelly and the Blair family for their sensitive and professional handling of the arrangements and the Argyll Hotel for providing the funeral tea. A special word of thanks to all the health professionals who cared for Walter and all the team at the patient transport in Campbeltown with a special thanks to Alex who drove through the snow to bring Walter home for a few days and finally to my family in Laurencekirk and beyond I will see you all soon to say our own private goodbye to Walter.
