On Tuesday September 15 2020, Kerry Linker from Canada left the following message for Peter Langeveld:
"To peter and sandra langeveld. I wish to impart this truth though in writing. I was in The hospital when Walter Langeveld passed on. At the time I believe I was 14? Maybe 13? Too young to truly grasp the inner sanctions of death. When Sandra's brother Jack came up to me and my father and confirmed the news I became confused. And irrational. At the hospital. In London where Walt died. And did not fully grasp what Jack said. Regarding Walt's death. I do not know why I was irrational. The news threw me for a loop. It didn't seem real. So I reacted like a child. Basically. Very foolishly. And backed away. Shaking my head. And saying nothing. Inappropriately. For that Sandra, I apologize. I wish I could say that to Jack. Right now. Who was a gentleman in his own way. He may not have been perfect in Christ. But Jack was a gentle man and I did wish to apologize to him. For my irrational reaction to the news of Walters death. Yet I never got the opportunity to. My father though Jim Jannes Linker who recently passed on himself on May 30th 2019 and who was with Jack also at the hospital at the time of Walter's death immediately respectfully said to Jack, my sincere condolences Jack for your loss. And for that I'm grateful. That my dad said those words to your brother Jack, Sandra, Albeit for the record just so your aware in the year 2000 I placed a memorial to Walter's memory at the crash intersection of Wavell and Clarke side road. Where Walt had his accident. It stood there for nearly a year before someone removed it. After all this time passed I just wish to tell you Sandra that I'm sorry you lost Walter at such a young age. In such a manner. My condolences to you and your family for losing Walter at such a young age. Signed sincrely. Your Bethel Christian reformed church childhood friend. Kerry J. Linker. P.S. For the record I suppose it should be stated, shortly after Walt's accident. Your mother told me to visit. I've always regretted that I never did. My apologies to you and your mother Sandra. That I never did visit."
