Elissa Norris wrote a sympathy message

“I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Dad and Walt painting all summer long when we were kids. It was always nice when they were in town because we would get to see them over lunch. Most of that time was spent telling jokes and stories and laughing a lot. Those memories always make me smile when I think back on them. Walt's larger than life presence will be missed by many. May the Lord comfort and bless you during this difficult time. Love and Blessings, Elissa”
