Bolivia and Connally,

My deepest sympathies over your loss of Walt. He clearly lived a full, albeit all too short life. I hope that your happy memories bring you comfort and that God grants you peace in time to come.

To the Family of Walter Powell Jr., We send you thoughts of comfort. Ecclesiastes 3:12 says, “ I have come to know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good during one's life;” I am sorry for your loss.

Bo and Connally words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you. Take comfort in the joy that Walt brought to you. For me, always remembering him in the ring, barely bigger than the dog, brings smiles to my heart. Take care my friends.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

Dear Bolivia and Connelly:
Please know that we are thinking of you during this time in your life. So sorry about Walt! Margo and Joe Klingler


Having served as organist for the wedding of Walt's parents, I also remember when Walt came along how happy and proud they were of him. Mostly I saw him as little boy when he visited his family here in Lufkin. It is always so sad when a life so full and just starting ends without any warnings.

My prayers and condolences to you both, Connally and Bolivia. He rests in the arms of in His presence now. A life so well lived will not be forgotten.
