    Dear Jan, Steve, Renee, Lisa, Jim Chris and Grady,

    I am so sorry and sad to hear of our dear Weldon’s passing away.
    I spent many summers visiting as a child and teenager. One of my favorite memories was dancing with Weldon. He was always so full of spicy fun life. I know he’s at peace now with our Heavenly Father. We will all miss this awesome man. God bless each of y’all.
