I could always count on Brian to help me with any computer problems I would have. He always knew how to fix things. I will miss his smile, laughter and easy going manner. May you Rest In Peace, Brian. We will miss you!

  6. Dear Emily & Hannah,

    Words can not express how sorry I am for your loss. Remember how much he loved you both and how proud he was to be your father. Emily, I’ve told you since you were 4 years old, I will always be here for you and just because I am no longer teaching at the studio, doesn’t mean I break my promises. You can call me or email me any time sweetie. Make your dad proud and fulfill all your dreams. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family during this very difficult time.

  12. I am so sorry to learn of the loss of Brian Walsh. He was a remarkable person who brought joy and warmth to the world. He was always good spirited and full of laughter. He was kind, gentle and very talented with computers. He always had a quick and accurate answer regarding any question I threw at him. I will miss him very much. He was a terrific fellow. I pray for strength and comfort for your family during this difficult time.

  13. Hannah and Emily and Brian’s entire family,

    My deepest sympathies to all of you. I am so heartbroken to hear about Brian. He worked here in our Human Resources Department and was such a hard worker. He would help with anything we needed and did such a great job. He will be deeply missed. I know our department keeps sharing fun stories about working with Brian and it keeps us smiling. Hold your memories near and dear to your hearts too; he was a wonderful guy and I know so proud of Hannah and Emily. He talked about you both all the time.

    God Bless; you are all in my prayers.

  14. You will be missed. You always had a special place in my heart. May God hold you in his arms and comfort your loved ones.

  15. By title, Brian was my boss, but he never acted as such. Rather, he treated me as a teammate and an equal. I have great respect for Brian’s abilities, work ethics, and for the great person that he was. He will be missed very much.

  16. May the joy Brian gave to you during his life on this earth remain in your memories. May your faith and knowing others care help heal your heart.

    Christian love and prayers,
    Colette Stepp

  17. Dear Emily and Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know your father, but I know that you are such a nice girl that both your parents must be lovely people. I was very impressed that you came to school on Monday and Tuesday. I hope being with your family now helps you start to heal. I lost my father when I was 28, and I lost my mother last year, so I know a little about the hurt you must be feeling. You and your family are in my thoughts. If there is anything I can do at school to help you get through, just let me know.

    Ms. Fratoe
