Just found this obituary. Sorry about your father. I remember meeting him years ago and how great he was along with your mother. Both of my parents have passed away several years ago. It really leaves a void in your life. May God bless you during this time and keep watch over your family in the days ahead. God Bless you all.

Dear Hazel, Dale and family, Ours prayers and sympathies to you in the loss of Ray. He was a great example of a Christian man, husband, and dad. What a blessing it was to know him and to know you for so many years. May God comfort you in these days. And although we grieve, we do not do so as those who have no hope. God bless you. Miss Billie sends her love and prayers as well.

We want to express our sincere sympathy to all of Mr. Welch's family. We remember first meeting him many many years ago when he and Mrs. Welch would come down to visit and attend NMBC. He was always such a gentleman--kind and friendly. We know what a difficult time this is, but we also know the peace that comes from knowing he is in his Heavenly Home.. What joy to know you will see him again. We are praying that our Lord will provide peace and comfort for you at this time. We wish we could be there for the visitation tomorrow night. Love, Bob and Jane
