When I turned on the TV last night, his face was on the screen... and I knew his pain was over... but the memory that immediately popped into my mind was not the man thanking the people of Jackson for signing organ donor cards after his illness was announced... it wasn't even the man with the flying feet on a journey to the end zone... It was Sweetness doing his thing in the "We are the Bears, shufflin' through" video made before their New Orleans Super Bowl appearance... a memory that always makes me smile. *S* Great tribute, WhtDove!

Ah.. another work of art by the Dove.. Walter will be missed here on earth and I know he is on the starting line up on the true all star team in heaven.... Sweetness by no other name could hold a candle to his geatnees a truly remarkable man on the field and off.. I will miss him ..

Suthern how true. We sold that video where I worked at the time, and it was constantly playing. It was a great memory. I think what I remembered was the day he retired and knelt down on the field, and everyone had tears. It was after that a while I lost interest in the game. Never been the same without him! The Super Bowl Shuffle, what a rememberance though. Thanks Suthern!
Tori well said. I couldn't agree with you more (on Walter that is)! He truly will be missed!
