To the Editor:
The Walter family would like to express great thanks to the Mattapoisett Fire-Rescue and Police Departments for their assistance on March 30 when Robert Walter passed away. Their efforts were above and beyond and really helped our family get through a “tough” day. We would especially like to praise officer Anthony Days of the Mattapoisett Police Department for all he did to assist Bob’s wife Pat and the rest of the family on that day. He showed us all how lucky the residents of Mattapoisett are to have such a professional, caring and highly involved person on the force! Thank you so much, Anthony, for all you do. We also think that he is a heck of an artist!
On a related note, the Walter family will be holding a memorial gathering for all who knew Bob at their home at 31 Water Street on Saturday, June 17 at 1:00 pm rain or shine. Please join us for an oyster, a cold beverage and some fond memories of Bob.
Our very best,
The Walter Family
