Please accept our prayers for Bob. He would come to Minneapolis sometimes, and stay at our Dads house , Tim Welch, and this is how we know him best - laughing and telling stories in the kitchen. He was a kind and fun man and we will miss his visits. Peace.
Shannon and John Devine on behalf of Tim Welch family in Mpls.
