Dear Walsh Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Coach Walsh was superlative in every sense of the word. He would light up a room and had a positive impact on so many lives. As it has been said earlier, thank you for sharing your husband and father with us. In college, I was a staunch supporter of The Suffolk Women's Basketball Team and would cheer “loudly” with Suffolk Pride! I also ran cross country for Coach Walsh and was the Manager of the “Mutts” for one season. I am truly a better person for these experiences!
We all have Coach Walsh stories, I know I have many. One of my favorite stories was from Spring Training with the “Mutts” in 1993. In Florida, we attended a Major League Baseball Spring Training Game. We talked our way into the game and got great seats for the entire team. During the game, Coach told me I could run faster than the guys on the field. He dared me to prove it. So, I ended up jumping onto the field and running the bases during the game.
I out ran everyone that gave chase!
Thank you Coach!
“In it, to win it!”
