Dear Relics, I would like to thank you for the way you supported our family with your prayers and love for Walt during his illness and after his passing. He loved playing softball with and coaching you. When he had a good game he would come home with a smile on his face but when he didn't...no smile. It didn't matter if he won or lost he always wanted to give 100%. So watch for him in the outfield this season he will be there. Love, Sue and family

Walt pointed out that anyone can get a single - always try for a double. Not a bad life lesson. Rest in Peace.

To all members of the board of directors, I am calling a business meeting for January 29th at 5pm at the Fish. We need to get our equipment orders going and get ready for the upcoming season. Thanks, Walter.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Walt's passing. Last season, I had the privilege of being on his team and he helped make my first season in the Gold one of my most enjoyable seasons ever in the Relics. Walt was a class act who treated all his players with respect and decency. When I take the field this spring, I will look out to left field and think of him. He will be missed but not forgotten R.I.P. Coach

Walt Sawa was one of my first teammates and I was happy to call him Big Walt during the year and ever since. His loss will be felt through both divisions of the Relics. Rest in Peace Walt.

Seeing the obit this morning, I've had to pinch myself a few times to believe what I read! I've met very few people in my life who were classier or nicer than Walter! This is an absolute shock! I'm terribly saddened! My deep condolences to Susan and his loving family! It will take an earthquake to keep me away from Cierpial Memorial Funeral Home at 4PM on Thursday!

Walt was a good guy. He always took time to say hello to me whenever he saw me at the field. He will be missed by everyone. RIP Walter Sawa.

Know Walter a couple of years; I grew to respect his athleticism, and learned about his humanity; his respect for his fellows and equity in his game. Some put players in, so they could win; Walter often sat the bench so others others played; This alone speaks volumes to his generosity in so competitive a spirit. Walter said in a message to his friends, “Don’t feel sorry for me.. been blessed with 51 years of marriage and children, I am OK with whatever the journey brings. -Walter, now that you’ve embarked upon a new journey. Travel Well..

I was saddened to read in Massive that Walt Saw has passed away. I know I can speak for everyone who has played with Walt that he was a class act and an excellent softball player. My condolences to his family.

Hey Pat, just a thought... would a change in venue for the xmas party attract more sign ups. Going to the same place with same menu each year may be a same oh same oh. Hope everyone has a great holiday season and looking forward to getting back on the field. Tom Nicholson
