About the Author:
John F. (Jack) Walsh was born with a severe hearing disability. In spite of that, he spent his entire life in a profession that required talking to people and carefully listening to what they had to say. He was extremely skilled in the art of listening and had an uncanny ability of figuring out what the problem was and how he could help.
Mr. Walsh passed away ten days after completing his book. Many in the community paid their respects, while discussing how much he helped them, their families, including the staff at the State Mental Health Center, where he had given eighteen years of his life.
