Our prayers for the family!
There are not enough words to describe Weldon and what he means to us. Weldon became almost instant family. He would tell us stories of his travels with Peggy. It was heartwarming to listen to the love he had for his wife. We feel blessed to have known this amazing man. We will miss him.
I am so sorry for your loss. Weldon and Peggy were my late husband’s friends but they quickly became mine. Forever I will treasure their friendship and support. Weldon was a wonderful man, loved his wife and his family deeply!
