Barbara P. Walsh

This is in remembrance of Barbara P. Walsh from Staten Island, New York.

Barbara worked as an adminstrative assistant for Marsh & McLennan on the 96th floor of Tower 1. More than that, she was a gracious lady who opened her heart and home to friends and family. A grandmother who loved to cook and garden and a niece who took time for her aunt.

I sincerely wish I knew more about her, that I had known her myself, but I don't. So I'll let her family and friends tell you who Barbara was.

From Legacy.com:

Thank you for letting me into you life. You treated me like you own child. I will never forget that. You have done great things for me and helped us out so much.
We miss you very much but will never forget you.
You have a grand-daughter on the way. Her name will be Brook Ashley. Allison and I decided that the baby's name had to start with a "B" in your honor. ~ Frank, son-in-law

You were a good friend to me on the ferry every morning at 7:40am and I will miss you. ~ Cheryl

Barbara was the sister I never had-- I adolized her as a child. She made me a part of her family and we had wonderful vacations with our children as they were growing up. I have wonderful memories of our years together. I knew on that day 9/11 that you might be in trouble--but thought you would miraculously escape. I miss you terribly, our weekly chats and still think of you all the time. You will be in my heart forever. ~ Rita, cousin

I miss you very much,miss the many laughs we shared over little things,you are in my prayers every day. ~ Maureen, sister

It seems like yesterday that you left us. Not a day goes by when everyone doesnt think of you. ...You will always be in our hearts and prayers. ~ Patrick, nephew

From The Staten Island Advance:

She was always very helpful and caring, ...She'd do anything for anybody. ~ Jennifer, daughter

To any family or friends of Barbara's who should happen upon this page, you have my sympathy and my prayers. You were so very blessed to have her in your lives and a part of her will carry on in your hearts.
