My sincere condolences to you Mary Ann and your entire family on the loss of your Dad. I remember visiting at Aunt Annie's our families would get togethers there and going out to your parents farm. Awe the good ole days. I remember my Grandfather (Doodle) would be fixated to the tv when your dad was playing and coaching football. He would try to explain the game to me, of course I was young and really didn't understand the game. My Mom (Bernadine Harmon-Lindquist) and your Mom Betty Yuhas were first cousins. Joanne R. Seleski-James

Dear Michaels Family, My deepest condolences for the passing of Walt. I had the pleasure, and honor of taking care of Walt at Wesley Village. He was surely one of a kind, and left an imprint on my life forever. Every morning on the weekends, I’d walk in and say, “good morning coach! Time to have some breakfast so we can get on that field and coach these kids to victory!” He'd laugh at me and say. “You know kid, you’re a good one” he signed a picture for my father because my father is a big jets fan, and remembered Coach when I told him that I was taking care of him. I’ll forever cherish that. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time, and please know, Coach’s life will always be remembered in not only my life but my family’s. Xo, Elizabeth
