Little known fact: like Mr. Rodgers and Ward Cleaver (Hugh Beamont) Ralph Waite was an ordained Protestant clergyman.
Goodnight, Papa Walton!

Memory Eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Memory Eternal!!!!

I loved the show as a kid, and just got reacquainted with it this year when I bought season 1 on CD. Season 2 is on the wish list. :). It tought good family values.

May God forgive him any trespasses, and grant him eternal peace.


Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

 "The Walton's" was a great show and what real hillbillies look like and behave.

May he rest in peace. Memory eternal.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
