  1. Dear Cousins–How much you are in my heart today and how I wish the little details of life didn\’t conspire to keep us apart when you are saying your goodbyes to Chris. I want you all to know how much we Mahoneys love you, and how much we share your sadness. We can take some heart in the fact that our parents wanted us to know eachother and to share the joys and sorrows of our lives. We have carried out their plan and honor their memory by doing so. I never thought the first one of us they would welcome above would be the youngest of us all. I recall how hard your mom and dad fought to keep Chris in this world when he was little and so sick, and what a victory it was when he recovered. He is in their arms now. I hope you will find strength tomorrow and in the days to come. I hope that your memories will just naturally focus on the best times you spent with Chris. Ann

  2. I grew up with chris and lost touch with him. Chris was my best friend as a child. My memories are filled backyard games and a best friend that I could trust.

  3. Our sympathies to the Walsh family on the loss of Christopher. Although not personally acquainted with Chris, I know the Walsh family to be kind and compassionate and I cannot imagine that Chris was any different. May the road rise to meet him. . .

  4. To my Little Brother, My heart is very heavy right now knowing how much I will miss the laughs, the struggles, and the great talks that we have had. Your pain is over and you are once again with Mom and Dad, but especially Mom. I know in my heart that you are in a happier place and that you will watch over us. I Love You my Little Brother. Love always, Norah
