Sometimes I just sit quietly

Reflecting for a while

Imagining your voice, your face

Your warm and loving smile

For it’s so lovely to recall

The happy times we had

When you played such a special role

As both Husband and Dad

And at this very special time

I only wish you knew

That I’d give all the world today

For one more hour with you

But I still have my memories

And since we’ve been apart

It comforts me so much to know

That you’re right here in my heart

Beulah and Brad —Your family has been basically a part of our family for as long as I can remember. Even our extended families have all been intertwined since Brad and I were just kids. Through all those years we all have many great memories of Dave. He was a gentle giant, always so calm and soft spoken, but he could be pretty funny too. We will all miss him terribly. I’m glad to know you are both surrounded by so much love and support from your large wonderful families and friends at this time. Dave was lucky to have you all, and Mom, Dad and I have been lucky to have known him and had him as part of our lives for so long. All my love, Hidi.

It has been many years since I’ve seen the
Walsh Family after they moved from Logy Bay.
Robert, Diane, Sharon, Jamie, as well, David’s
wife & son, please accept our deepest condolences

lose a loved one. Remember all the wonderful
memories you have. God Bless, Rest In Peace David🙏
