Topic: Bill Walsh

My dear sweet husband Bill Walsh died on Wednesday. Here is the Washington Post obituary that does such an amazing job of capturing him and his status as the "rock star" of copy editors:

Linda Holmes of NPR also wrote about him this morning:

I'm so crushed, but his final days were not easy and right now the biggest comfort is that he is not in pain anymore.

Dear Googily,

I am in the D.C. area and saw this piece in the Post today.  We have all lost a great champion and role model within the media community.  Discussion board readers saw through your posts his courageous fight and your untiring advocacy for his care.  Please accept my condolences and prayers.

Re: Bill Walsh

Dear JD, I am so sorry but like you I was wanting suffering of Teddy to be done as well. You and Bill
fought valiantly and with dignity and once again another amazing being has become an Angel of G-d.

Perhaps from Bill to you:

  If I should be the first to go,
And leave you alone, my Dear,
Let not your heart be lonely,
Nor in your eyes a tear.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I’ll not be far away,
With petals of love and tenderness,
I’ll pave for you the way.
To join me in our sanctuary,
And ne’er again we’ll part.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I live within your heart.
Take joy again in living,
As you did in years gone by;
God knows what of he’s doing,
And not be questioned why.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
My life with you on earth
Each moment filled with happiness,
And love so few be worth.
I’ll be waiting for you Sweetheart
Where skys are ever blue,
With eager heart and open arms
Patiently, for you.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
May faith and my love keep.
Your soul filled with contentment
Eternally, I sleep.

THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME! Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING
