Hi Cathy,

I know you will miss Walter. I miss my Walter who passed this year as well. I think our Walter’s have something in common. Both of them were frustrated by their frailty. Both of them thought there was something else left to do.

There is something left to do. Our Walter’s taught us something. Our Walter’s passed an incredible piece of themselves to us. We can honor them by taking the leg up they gave use and reaching as high as we can. Stretching our fingers out and touching the stars because they gave us a boost. Our Walter’s lives are reflected as a masterpiece painting but the paint is not dry. Their masterpiece is still taking shape because they poured into us and now our lives are some of the fresh paint. For as long as you work with the lessons Walter passed on to you, his masterpiece becomes more and more priceless. If you pass on what Walter taught you… I think you can see where this is going.

I Feel for your loss but I also feel for your fortune of having such an incredible friend and mentor.

Cathy, You will never stop growing. I agree with the rest of the lumberjocks. There is no finish line. Live the rest of your life well. If there comes a day when your are too frail to do woodwork, pass your wisdom along. You might not be able to see the beauty of what you are doing all the time but I got a glimpse of your heart. I think you are creating a masterpiece.


-- Thanks for all the lessons!
