Zac, my loving son

In honor of Zac Walter

My name is Daniel D. Walter.

Our family moved to Arizona from Maine so Zac could go to ASU. I found employment in the prison system as a counselor for mental health and substance abuse. Our son started at ASU, yet he didn’t do well on his own at first. He had to drop out and started at community college. He was very happy with his progress, and we were very proud of him.

He was working two jobs at one point and going to school. We visited on weekends and on days off. He was my youngest son and like a best friend. We had long talks about everything going on in the world. I truly feel like part of my heart was taken.
