Dear Walker Family, We wish to express our deepest condolences to you at this very sad time in your lives. Mrs. Mae was a special person to us and we will miss her deeply. She was always so pleasant and fun to be around. Scott enjoyed talking to her at church and then later on going to visit with her at the nursing home. We rejoice that she is now in a much better place where she is no longer affected by the weaknesses of the physical body. May God comfort all of you during this time.

My condolences to Grandma Walker's passing. She was the sweetest lady I ever knew. I miss her so much.
What a beautiful lady both inside and out. I just found out about her "homegoing." I wish I had known earlier and would have been at her funeral. Mrs. Walker was one of my FAVORITE customers when my mother and I ran L&D's Hair Designs, in Draper some years back. She was forever telling us stories about her children, and grandchildren. She loved you all and was so very proud of each of you! She sure left a lasting impression on me. I honestly looked forward to our Saturday mornings at 9:00 am sharp. Please know how much both my Mom and myself thought of her. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. She was such a grand lady and will be missed.
