James J. Walton

West Point, 1989

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Theresa McCrackine on July 7, 2008:

I just learned of your death through the Army Times. The shock is profound and I'm heartbroken for the loss of such a dear friend. I knew Jim back in the early 90's when he was stationed in Neu Ulm, Germany. He was my CCD instructor, mentor, and friend. He was an excellent role model for many teens.

He was someone I always looked up to because he possessed the qualities anyone would want to emulate. Though we kept intermittent contact, it was always with great joy to receive a note, a letter, an email, or a picture from Jim. I prayed for him often and when I learned of his marriage, Sarah, you were added into that prayer.

So it is with great sorrow I write this note. May Mary, our Mother, hold you close during your time of grief and may God hold you even closer.

Prost, Plonker, prost.
