Walled Lake Western High School - In Memory

** We are moving to a New Version of Alumz. The new site has improved features like groups, events, chat and games. Set up your school before we shut down the old version and we will move over the "in memory" section.

You can sign up with your Facebook account or just on Alumz. Use the Facebook signup if you have a Facebook account.

We want to remember the good times with family and friends who are no longer with us.

The person will show up on the site after we check the entry.

Add a person to the In Memory list.

Also, if you see any invalid information that gets posted, please send an email and we will make the change.
