Linda, My condolences on Walter. He was always very respectful to me at all of the Cook County Funeral Directors meetings. I always admired how well Walter dressed. Many years ago I rented his 59th Street chapel and had a very enjoyable evening talking 'shop' with him. Rest in Peace Walter , a true funeral director.

Kosary family so sorry for your loss.
I had the honor to care for Walter when he was in the Hospital at Christ on 8 south.

Dear Linda,

My deepest sympathies to you and your family.

You don't know me by name, just from sitting next to me by Eddie's. I've always liked you, and I want you to know that tonight you're in my heart and prayers.

May you find strength in all of the wonderful memories you two made together. And may your Walter now be at peace. ❤️

So sorry for your loss. Your loved one lived a rich and rewarding life. in the Bible at Psalm 90:10 it tells us that "the span of our life is 70 years. Or 80 if one is especially strong. So indeed, your loved one living to an age of 93 was special. May the memories of him always bring a smile to your face. Warm condolences.
