A Family’s Story: Ursula and Richard Walker

Sunday, April 24

“Almost a year has passed as we wait for the responsible person or persons to be arrested. We wait for police updates. We wait for someone from our community to come forward with information about a crime that occurred in broad daylight. We wonder why this happened, and we wait for the killing of others to stop.”

These are the gut-wrenching words written by Ursula Walker, whose son Christopher was shot and killed in front of a restaurant in Altadena almost two years ago.

She writes further “All of society suffers when evil is unleashed to dissolve unsuspecting citizens into thin air. Homicide leaves family and friends with an immeasurable sense of loss. Christopher’s children lost their father; an employer lost a dedicated worker; his community lost a good neighbor; his landlord lost a responsible tenant; the marketplace lost a productive consumer.”

Please join the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force and COLORS in welcoming Mrs. Walker and her husband Richard to All Saints Church on Sunday, April 24. They will speak about how the tragedy of gun violence impacted their family and the ongoing processes & community solutions in which they are involved. In the Guild Room during the Adult Education Hour at 10:15 a.m. More details below.
