So sorry to hear about Walter's passing. I am also so sorry I have not kept in touch.
My Dad, Jim Quivey passed away just two weeks ago. I hope you remember me, Dixie, I purchased your little Chris horse back in 1965 and rode him on a trail ride on a Sunday and on Monday I was in the hospital and had my appendix out. Walter and Nellie were so upset they thought I got hurt from Chris when they heard I was in the hospital. John,
you took me for a ride in a small plane once and we were just about run over by a large plane, I do not think I have been in a small plane since. I loved your Mom and Dad and I am so sorry I have not kept in touch with Walter all these years. They were both such amazing people and your dad always had everyone laughing he had such a way of telling a story that you would laugh even before the punch line. Our family went on many rides with him and Fred Lifer and I enjoyed every minute of it. He and Fred came out to South Dakota one year and then we all went down to Cheyenne Frontier Days to help Dad with the his horses in the parade. I know you will miss him and i am sure your family has grown up learning from him and the grandkids willl have many happy memories to remember Walter. We still have horses on the ranch and Dad had workhorses all the years he was out here and I think of Walter often when I am riding.

My condolences,
Linda (Quivey) Murdock
Hot Springs, SD
