Irishman Tom Walsh, 43, the manager of the popular Mainstreet Grill in the small city of DeLand, Florida was shot during a suspected robbery on Saturday night.
Just Days before the EuroDisney Cast Member reunion for the resorts 20th anniversary we all had some really sad news - one of our number Tom Walsh had been murdered in Florida.
The funeral was huge, tom had 8 brothers and sisters, he was the baby and as you can imagine it was terribly sad for them to say goodbye. his niece played danny boy in the church......it can be a cliche but the tears rolled down my face, it truly is the immigrant's anthem. his ex-wife lisa, his daughter kira and all the walsh family were touched when i told them how much we all would miss the great guy, we had the privilege of knowing for such a short time.
Sorry it took me so long to post this, but we found out when we came back that Tom wasn't the only one we had lost, Jeff Ridley (Hurricanes Night Club) had also passed away.
this though was a little harder as we had been unaware.....2 years ago. that was quite hard for my husband as he and jeff had only got back in touch and then due my father-in-law's passing, andy had lost contact with jeff again. Then the anniversary came round and pictures were put up, with the comment RIP Jeff.
firstname.lastname@example.org is the name of his brothers website, he can put people in touch with the people in Deland, Florida, where tom was living.
Well it took us a week to get our heads around that. So sorry about the delay
