3-13-2014....Walter, I just saw the posting of your passing by a fellow grad of Highlands Class of '64.  I am sad to see it.  Even at age 68/69 we're all too young 'to go.'  I was really looking forward to seeing you again later in October at our 50th high school reunion...I'll miss you.  I greatly enjoyed our short times together at a few previous 10-year anniversaries when we shared dances together and talked of your sister Myrna, whom I actually knew better than you in school days.  Myrna and I had a history class together and we studied together in study hall for history tests.  [I remember that she was having trouble in the class and as we studied her scores imporved, and so did mine.  I remember that she told me she couldn't stay up late in those days to do homework and study (I was, still am, a night owl), as your father's bedtime rule prohibited late hours.  I was amazed.  hahaha.]  Anyhow, I remember no classes with you, but that you were sweet Myrna's brother...we were all there for 6 years -- at least I was, 7th>12th.  You always remained the same to me...changing very little.  Even your obit pix is very recognizable.  You were always pleasant and friendly to me; perhaps you didn't know many people at those reunions--?  To dance at a reunion is quite a social feat for today's society...many guys wouldn't venture...  I remember we spoke of Myrna not attending and I asked you to talk her into coming, but she never has.   I hope to go to your Memorial service husband, John Hines, and I.  Perhaps I'll see you for the last time...although I usually decline nowadays to go to viewings.  Perhaps I'll see Myrna and talk to her for the first time in 50 years...  But now I know her last name, etc. and can get in touch with her.   I'm so glad to read that you had a family of your own and grew it...with kids and grandkids.  They'll never forget you.  Thank you for you fireman's service.  [I know that It is a very hazardous occupation and can often attribute to ill health.]   I'm hoping you didn't suffer with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's desease, as my husband, the sports expert, tells me.  Walter, I salute you and may I meet you again in heaven and greet you as my brother, as I am Jesus' child and hope you are too.  Forgive me for never asking til now... I should have.  You've taught me a lesson... If you're able, send His angels to watch over us until we all meet again.  --Cristn E. Wells Hines

Walter F. Schweers passed away March 6, 2014.  He was a San Antonio Fire Fighter for 33 years.  He retired as a Lieutenant.  He had three children.  Brian, Justin, and Shelly.  Justin passed away in 2010, from ALS.

I was married to him for almost 25 years.  We remained friends through the years and in his last few years I was a part of his life and care. 

He loved life and people.  He tried to live the life of a Christian. I am sure he and Justin are hunting or fishing in that great other side.
