Remembering John Patrick Welsh

John passed away unexpectedly at the age of 43 leaving behind his wife and children.  He lived struggling with depression and alcoholism/addiction. He fought hard battling his demons while still trying to grow into the man he so desperately wanted to be. He was an excellent chef, loved his children beyond words, was a good husband and an avid music lover and writer. Yet, with all of his great qualities and loves in life, the depression and addiction still won. Many loved ones did everything they could to help him. 
The entire family is in shock and so many people have reached out asking how they can help. Please consider a donation to help Tanya and the kids with memorial expenses, funding for a celebration in memory of John and the short term day to day needs while they get their finances in order. These funds will ease some of the financial burden. Your support is very much appreciated.
Please keep the Welsh family in your thoughts and prayers as they need strength and comfort to get through.
