I first met Walter when I came to work for the BGAV in 2011. He was a grace-filled individual who would exude such love and grace. Walter and Betty sat in for a couple of Sunday School trainings I did over the years as well. They were always learning and offering encouragement after the training. My heart goes out to all of the family, and know I am praying for you all! Love & Prayers, Tony Brooks

Mr. Harrow will truly be missed by many people. Harry T & I enjoyed our times fishing with him. Harry T enjoyed their conversations so much. My prayers to the family & may God give you peace and comfort. Your memories will be cherished forever.

It was with great sadness that we learned of Walter's passing on Christmas Eve. As all of his family and friends know, he was a wonderful and loving man. I first heard his gentle voice over my VHF radio from his charter boat "Miss Nan" talking with other fishermen in the area. Later I was fortunate to meet Captain Walter and Betty as well as their family and have wonderful memories of my visits with them. Hopefully soon the void left in the hearts of those he left behind will be filled with warm memories of past times.

Sincerely, Kathy and John Barber
