Praying for you Peggy and your family. Walt will be missed.

Kathy & Carl Kleinsteuber , Savannah, GA

Peggy and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Carolyn Beebe, Savannah, GA

My dear Peggy, I am so sorry for your loss. I know that Walt was your best friend and he adored you. What a wonderful husband, father and grandfather he was. I will be praying for you and your family. With much love, Beth Colson

Elizabeth, SAVANNAH, Georgia

So sorry that this has happened. We can't see that this day will come. We think that these Bazemore boys are invincible. Lord Peggy all we could ever do is what they would allow us to do, and that was to love them and and come up good ideas that were good for them and make them think it was their idea. He will still be BIG BROTHER. Love you girl. If you need me, I am here. Kiss the boys and the girls and see you tomorrow. Kisses, Trudy and family.

Trudy Ramsey-Bazemore, Savannah , Ga

I am sorry to hear about the passing of Walt. I pray that his family is comforted by knowing that in the future God promises to do away with the illnesses that affect our lives so much today. “And no resident will say: “I am sick.” - Isaiah 33:24. We can trust in this promise because God always carries out his word.

Walt was a great architect and friend during my years at BJS. It has been wonderful to know him and he will be missed. Frank
