My condolences to the Wells And Welch family. When I shopped at Well and Welch department store downtown Buena Vista the Welches and Wells was always so good to me. Judy is surely going to be missed. I love her family, her daughter taught my daughter (KaShara)in school, her sister was very helpful at The Dime Store. What a remarkable family. Love was always shown and again I pray for God to strengthen the family, in Jesus name I pray amen! She was definitely loved and will be missed. Cast all of your concerns on the Lord and he will see you through this.
