Condolences for Junior Walter Dimond

It was a real privilege and pleasure to be invited to play the organ at your fathers service. I met him a few times, but didn't realize what a great man he truly was. I have played for more than one funeral, but have not felt the emotion and spirit that I felt while playing the prelude. I found myself weeping and wiping tears as I pondered what a great man he truly was and what an honor it was to be invited to play for his final services. Thanks again and we truly do extend our deepest condolences with your father's passing. Sincerely, Steve and Joy Marker

Dear Dimond Family, I am Arnold Larson's daughter and wish I could have attended the services today. I live in West Point and when I read Walt's obit, it brought back fond memories. I remember visiting with you on the Hamsfork ranch many times. I even got to stay at your home for a couple of days and remember what a good family you are. My father passed away almost 2 years ago, but he often talked about Walt and how sad he was when you moved away. There are not many men like Walt and my dad. They were very hard working. May you know that your family has touched many hearts and may you feel peace and comfort at this time.

Craig, I wanted to wish your family the best at this time. I hope the Lord can bless you and yours with peace.

Dear Norma, So sorry to hear of your loss. Walt was a wonderful man. I've missed you dear folks since you moved from Kemmerer. Stuart really enjoyed serving as counselor with Walt under Bishop Williams. Stuart and I moved to Cheyenne, WY in 1981 when Stuart was appointed to the Supreme Court. He passed in 1997. Sure do miss him too. Love, Jane
