TORONTO - As family and friends mourned the loss of Georgia Walsh at her funeral on Monday, financial tributes in her memory were on the rise to help the Hospital for Sick Children.

The six-year-old daughter of John Walsh, the president of the Conservative Party of Canada, was killed last Wednesday after being hit by a van in a Leaside intersection.

Her family asked for donations to be made to Sick Kids in lieu of flowers and as of Monday afternoon, $66,000 of the $75,000 goal had been raised.
