Walker Allen Lee Hilliard
Walker Allen Lee Hilliard, the infant son of Ryan and Lauren Hilliard, went to be with Jesus on Monday, June 7, 2021. Most only dream of angels but Ryan and Lauren were able to hold theirs in their arms. Walker was a gift to his entire family. For thirty-five cherished weeks and four days, he was prayed for and loved. God only knows why Walker was too good for this world. But Jesus said,” Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”- Matthew 19:14
His potential life achievements include future Chairman of the National Rifle Association, Texas Cowboy and Cowgirl Hall of Fame inductee like his grandparents, Mount Everest Summiteer, Olympic Medalist in 21 events from gymnastics to shooting, Nobel Prize in Physiology, two-time presenter at Geneva Convention on the treatment of medical personnel during wartime, and Major League Baseball hall of fame member.
