  1. Katherine Walden :

    Dear Tim, Frank and family,

    My heart grieves at your loss – and my loss as well. Mrs C, as I affectionately called Peggy, was a dear friend to my mom and a second mom to me. She will always be considered as an extended member of the Walden clan. I will miss her unconditional love and encouragement deeply. More than once she spoke an apt word at the just the right time, words that I carried in my heart for years. I will be holding you all up in prayer over the months to come as you grieve her loss and celebrate her life. I wish it was possible for me to attend her celebration mass but please know I will be there in my heart!

    With love,
