Dear Mr. Walsh, Tim, Jenna and Family, My prayers are with you during this very challenging time. Your wife and mother was truly one of Mater Dolorosa School's most respectful and cooperative parents. Always pleasant and friendly, it was obvious that she truly was the Heart of your home. It was a pleasure to interact with her, even when it was just her smiling hello, as she walked near the school building. You certainly are a credit to her and I am sure that you always will be! A great and very gifted Lady, your wife and mother leaves a legacy of love with all of you. God bless you, Grace McGuirl

I pray that your family and loved ones will find consolation in the beautiful memories that you have weaved into their hearts and that they remember what you stood for, as they forge ahead with a firm determination to do what they know you would want them to do. My condolence to the family. Rest in Peace.
