Dear Eddie,

I just learned of your mother's passing and I wanted to send along my condolences to you and the family. I am usually at a loss for words at times such as these, so please forgive me. The Motyl family has always been there for my family and I know that my father and the rest of the Walshes will be there for you whenever you need us.
