    The Miami U did an extraordinary deal for Walter Reid, they were able to attatch to his liver so his shot pancreas would work again
    He could not take the pain and rejection from his sons mother they were not married, you can guess what happened next
    Very sad outcome, tho he deserves the honor IMO Karl is a good friend with a sad story similar to mine
    I am glad I was invited to the ceremony
