  3. Walker Hendrix was my half brother. My father was Walker C. Stewart. Over the last several years I have tried to find him. For some reason I tried again today and was so surprised to see that he had recently passed. I never saw him very often, but remember his great sense of humor. My condolences to Linda and the rest of the family.

  4. Dear Linda & family,

    I am a half-sister of Walker’s. He used to check on my mother Marilyn a couple of times a year. He was such a sweetheart that way. My mother was incapacitated and I tried to reach out.That was when I discovered all my mother’s contact information was wrong. My sister Becky and I looked for he and Linda I am saddened that this was the way we found them.

    He was truly one of a kind. I enjoyed being with him every time I had the opportunity. I send my deepest sympathy to Linda who I remember fondly and the rest of Walker’s family. With love and prayers for peace and comfort. 215-960-7668
