Bubba,

Thank you for being such a great husband, father and grandfather to all of my cousins! I’ll also never forget how awesome you were towards my siblings and I in our childhood - and what a power of example you’ve been for me in my own journey through recovery.

Your passing leaves a void which may never be filled in the Walsh family. You truly have a special place in not only my Mothers heart, but all of ours. (Even though when I was young, I did always have a feeling you were Santa, since you two had the same big booming voice!)

To Kathy, Kenny, Stacie and Shannon - you have my love, thoughts and prayers for you all.

-JohnO

No one is meant to live forever and, unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to every last one of our beloved friends and family members. Bubba is my cousin and with his loss my first thought was shock but cannot find the words to describe my sadness. Fortunately, I am able to go back in the past and remember the fun and adventurist times Bubba and I had as kids in the streets of Roxbury together. Even as kids Bubba was charismatic and always had a big laugh. No matter what I say, I can never bring you Bubba back to life, but when I think of him, I will remember his big smile and his willingness to tell you a story. The world is a sadder place knowing he is no longer here. My thoughts and prayers are with Bubba and his family.

Kathy and kids,
Just not sure where to even begin to say how important Bubba is to all of us. He became the patriach for me and in an Irish family that is an amazing role. He was there in good times (which there were many!) but also in bad times, having our backs and showing us love and support. He was truly one of kind. Shannon, Stacey and Kenny, I know how blessed we all are to have such amazing Dad’s. Let your memories sustain you. Kathy, when we talk about Bubba, it is always phrased as Bubba and Kathy. You two are just an amazing example of true and lasting love. I saw that love between you two blossom when I was a kid and just stay so true and steady for well over 51 years. That is just an awesome legacy. I send my love to you all. Thank you for sharing this wonderful guy with all of us. He was truly a gift. Love, Maureen

You're in our prayers.

Kathy, Kenny, Stacey and Shannon,
I was so very sorry to hear about Larry. Such a huge loss.
Larry came into our office for many years and each time was a delight.He was always so happy and kept us all in stitches. His appointment would be at a certain time and he always came early and stayed well after the visit. We hated to see him leave the office.
I have missed him since our office closed and now even more. He became a trusted friend to us all, there was no one like him.

I will never forget Larry. He was the best patient- tough, never complained. We loved to see him coming-he was hilarious, cared about us, and he would do anything he could for you.
I am very sorry for your loss-he was a great person and I was honored to be his doctor.

So saddened by the loss of Bubba. His infectious smile and genuine personality will surely be missed on Langley Rd. He was like the welcome greeter for the street No matter what kind of day it was if Bubba was outside he would welcome you with the biggest smile and wave instantly putting a smile on your face. His personality was contagious. He will be missed. Thinking of the whole family sending warm hugs

Thank you everyone for your kind words, they help my whole family during this time ! I will miss my father everyday. But with all my memories of him as my dad, coach, boss, big brother, best friend, golf partner, gambling buddy and most importantly hero and role model, not an hour will go by without thinking of him and smiling. He was the best Dad a son could have and I was always proud to Bubba's son! I am glad we were able to make so many memories together for me to remember.
