Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • On behalf of my family we would like to send our most sincere and deep condolences to the Welwood Family. We are very sorry for the loss of your Mom and our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Muriel always reminded me so much of my mom, the same beautiful eyes and skin and I am so thankful for the wonderful visit that we had last summer. She recognized me right away and it made me happier than I can even express! We reminisced about things I couldn’t even believe she could remember. Working for the police department in her younger years, she had a strong personality and I love her sense of humor. My biggest regret is not being able to visit this year. I sincerely hope that our moms will be together again with their parents, sisters, brothers and family in heaven. Sincerely, Cheri & Family - Posted by: Cheri Chase (Niece ) on: Sep 28, 2020
