In memory of Walter Gretzky:
Kim, Wayne, Brett & the extended Gretzty Family: As we both know, both Walter and my dad, Phil Hatcher, were special people. Both lived their adult lives as humble people who did good for others in small city Brantford. They both had full lives dedicated to helping the community and the disadvantaged. They are entitled to rest in peace, but I doubt that they want to.

Please accept our sincere condolences, Tom &Graham Hatcher.
.. PS - KIM, We have to get Walter's first book reprinted (Tom)
