The world has lost an amazing person, but we are all richer for what he has left us. From those of us who were fortunate enough to know Wally Cleaver personally – thank you Tony. We will miss you.” “Thank you for the memories of a simpler time, for the laughter, for the friendship, and for the feeling that you were our big brother. We will miss you.”
