Celebrating the life of Martin L. Walter
Thank you for signing Martin L. Walter's Guestbook
I first met Daria and Marty through my best friend Theresa and her husband Norm. As many of you described, he was so kind and truly cared about people. I was impressed how much he loved Daria and took such good care of her during her illness. He was always smiling and had an optimistic outlook on life. My husband and I had the pleasure of having him over for dinner when he was in Ohio in July. I'm so thankful that we were able to spend that evening with him. He was a Godly man and those that knew him will never forget what a wonderful person he was.

Martin was the best ever, But most of all our best friend since the day he & his wife Daria moved into the house across the street from us here in Conway.. Not only our best friend's but considered him & Daria as family, as they did us. He was the kindest, most helpful person we know, to not only us, but to everyone...alway's smiling, great personality, outgoing, had a fantastic outlook on & for life in general, alway's kept busy if not doing his own daily things of his life, but helping other's, never complained or hesitated to do so, that's just the way he was. This world needs more people such as Mart in.. a true version of God's Angel... We had a lot of great times together alway's... and shall miss him dearly, he may be gone. but will forever be in our heart's, thought's.,& on our mind's... It was an honor to have met him, be his friend/family for the time we shared as neighbor's... A one of a kind person, you don't come upon now a day's. We'll never forget him & Daria..May you both rest in peace ! Know we love you. <3 James & Linda Bianco.

Marty was one of the finest people I knew. He was a wonderful husband to Daria, gave willingly his time and talents to anyone who needed him, a God fearing man and a friend to so many of us who knew and loved him. There is a saying "You can pick your friends but you can't pick your family". Not so with Marty, he considered everyone family and I carry his words in my heart "We're all family". Thank you Marty for your friendship and love . I know Daria was waiting for you and Jesus welcomed you with open arms. Your "family" of friends misses you and we were blessed to have had you in our lives. Love Jan
