    I'm so sad to read this. Walt was such a dear man and a real treasure to this community. He was always here to provide words of encouragement and even wrote a book with Herb, another veteran on the wiki. I'm so grateful for Walt's presence here and he will be greatly missed.

    I was afraid this might have happened. He was getting up there in years and hadn't posted in awhile. His words were so soothing for those of us in deep suffering. Such a caring man...

    I too greatly appreciated Walt's postings and was only just the other day reading one of his encouraging threads from back in 2016. As @DWA says, his words were so soothing. Very sad news.

    Thank you for posting this Patrisia. I am so sorry to hear this.

    Walt was a great presence here. He had a kind, reassuring way, and very confident in the efficacy of TMS work, which was hugely helpful for many. As Fred said, his words are still here which is wonderful.

    Wow. What a beautiful obituary. "We are rich; we just don't have any money." That obit is a great read on a human life.

    Walt was the ultimate Beloved Grand Eagle. I once had a private conversation with him during one of my darkest moments. He was so inspiring and encouraging and darn proud of the laundry list of books he wrote. He was right to be proud, not just of what he did but who he was. RIP, Walt.

    So sorry to hear about Walt's passing. I bought his book that he wrote with Herb and will continue to cherish his posts and care that he showed on this forum!

    Such sad news! I haven't been around here much or long, but as a long-time lurker I quickly came to appreciate Walt's sweetness, wisdom, generosity and gentle humour. I'm sure he's helped heal a lot of people, I know he's helped me. I bet he's somewhere happy now, reunited with his beloved doggies and having a good old chat with Dr Sarno! :happy:

    I didn't know Walt personally...but in some ways, I feel like I did. He was such a kind and caring person. His love of his dog was quite beautiful. His caring for all of us here on the TMS Wiki was evident through his presence and gentle posts.

    I will miss Walt...and I'm so glad we have his words to guide us.
