I am so sorry for your unbelievable loss. Such a difficult time for everyone.

Sending prayers and condolences to family and friends. I remember Cullen at Holy Ghost Parish when he served on the altar and was a member of the CYO. He always had a kind word to say to everyone and was very involved in things at the church. Such a loss. Stay strong and God bless you all.

I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear today that Cullen had died. I remember so many instances of his warmth, kindness, and yes, being the smartest guy in the room from our BC High days. He was very much indeed an old soul even then. To Joan, Bill, and Cullen's family, I am so terribly sorry for your loss.

Mr. and Mrs. Walsh and family, I cannot express how sorry I am about Cullen's passing. I will always remember when we went to Denver for World youth day and Cullen helping me with homework in high school, He was always better at Math.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I will always remember Cullen as the little boy playing with Scott, trying crazy things just to see if they could. Growing up on Oakwood Ave was a wonderful start. So sorry to hear of his passing, my thoughts are with all of you at this sad time.
