Not sure what to say?

I only just now learned of Louisa's passing, and I am really sad to know that such a wonderful light went out eight years ago. We were friends when she lived in Wayne and use to go hiking and dancing together all the time, and attended the UU church there. She really was special. Saying a prayer for her and her family

Dear Dr. and Mrs. Walsh, and the Walsh family:

I am profoundly saddened to learn of Louisa's passing away. My sincerest condolences to all of you.

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Louisa. While we haven't seen her in many years, we knew her well when she was involved with MLUC groups in the 90's.

Dear Dr. and Mrs. Walsh:
I feeling deep sadness today having learned of Louisa's passing last night. She lit up my life and all who came in contact with her. I could always count on her honesty and clear communication.

Dear Walsh family,
I am so sorry to hear about Louisa. She was always sweet to me growing up. She was quick to find humor in every situation and laugh and smile about it. She also seemed wise beyond her years (even as a teen-ager) with that kind sparkle in her eyes! I miss you all and hope for peace within your hearts.
Love,
Celeste
