Its always sad to hear the loss of a fellow prospector.
Although I too have never met him, Travelergold was a valued contributer to the few threads I started, always willing to share his experience and knowledge in prospecting.

Wally's funeral service was this morning, we couldn't get there in person to say our goodbyes, but the service was live streamed.

A very touching service, so even not being able to get there we could still say goodbye to Wally, very happy to have meet wally a number of years ago and sad to have to say goodbye now, thanks for the memories Wally.

And to Jackie all our love and sympathy always.

Your good friends dave n veronica

Sorry Dave I just read the sad news about Wally, as I've just got back from holidays today after 2 weeks away. I personally never met Wally (Travelergold) but it is alway a sad time when you hear of a passing friend and a fellow prospector. Dave please pass on my condolences to Wally's family.
