Celebration of Life for John Welch

The Welch family lost a son, brother, and uncle Thursday, August 9th 2018 at the young age of 28. John was known by all as caring, funny, and a good person. He loved his family but especially his niece and nephews and they are all devastated by the passing of their uncle John. Because of the sudden tragedy, the family did not have a life insurance policy on John so we have set up a memorial fund to help the family with cremation expenses as well as the Celebration of life that John and his family deserve. All proceeds will go directly to the Welch family and are appreciated greatly! Please keep this wonderful family in your prayers as they say their final goodbyes in the days ahead. An obituary has not been released yet but John's sister in law, Brittany, posted a beautiful tribute that I've decided to share here: 

"It is in an instant that life can change and all of your hopes, plans, dreams, can completely disappear. I am so sad that John has left this earth. He really was one of the greatest ones here on earth that got caught up. He was fighting for his life and he should only be remembered through his loving, kind heart. He had a heart like Jesus.
Dear John, we love you so much that all we can bear to imagine right now is you in the arms of Jesus telling him how happy you are that you are finally home.
I can't wait to see you again one day, brother."
