My sincere condolences to the Sales Family. During this time of sorrow, may the fond memories that you shared with Mr. Walter bring you comfort.

Growing up on the farm in the 60’s in Clarinda, IA - I was blessed to have the Walt Sales family as neighbors. Walt was city manager and during his tenure there he brought many improvements to the city. Walt took his young family back Montana, to the Sales Family Ranch. I was fortunate to be able to enjoy spending a couple of brief visits with him and family in recent years. What a man - what a family. Our deepest sympathy to those left behind. Robert Smith (Springdale, AR)
