I’m sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I was the daughter of a friend of hers, Marilyn Hickey. My mother played bridge with Anne and a few others, and they became the mainstay friendships of her senior years. She spoke of your mother often, and her friendship meant so much to my mother, who had no extended family here.

To the Walsh Family

Please accept our deep condolences on the passing of your Mother. Unfortunately we are currently in Florida and not able to attend the funeral.

May all the good memories of the past sustain you at this time of grief.
