Ray Jr., John, & Theresa,
We were saddened to read about the loss of your brother. We have the highest respect for your family. We were so glad Kevin was able to visit
your mom in the nursing home when he was working as a social worker.
We especially appreciated her babysitting & doing housework while I was
at a summer job. It's too bad she's not here for the royal wedding Sat.
When Chas & Diana wed, she would hurry through her work to watch the royal wedding on TV!

There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death; no doubt Mr. Welge will be sadly missed by all who knew him. May you find comfort in knowing death, sickness & sorrow were not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. His word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4)
Further, Jesus guaranteed the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he performed resurrections and was himself resurrected by his Father. All resurrections took place on earth, giving us a glimpse of what is to come.... seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
Until his promises are fulfilled, may Jehovah God continue to bless & comfort you as you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Welge in the days ahead....
