As one of Heather’s best high school friends, I spent many days & nights at the Weldon household. I came to love Ms. Sandy’s personality, her love & devotion to family, her strength & her guidance to all of us young women when we needed advice, usually with a glass of white wine in hand after her day at work. When I was in my early 20’s & needed such advice, I still called her. She encouraged me to be a strong woman & demand respect. Even after all these years, I think of her often- especially if I’m having my glass of white wine after a hard day’s work. Thank you Ms. Sandy & much love & peace to your family. You are an angel now! 😘💗💐

Meme always greeted us with that beautiful smile and took the time to chat, whether at a Chelena family gathering or a chance meeting in a grocery aisle; always asking how we were first, then filling us in with that mesmerizing gift of making ordinary events of life a big wonderful adventure!
Meme will be remembered by us as a genuine, caring, compassionate, fun loving soul who left a beautiful piece of her behind in her precious family that we are blessed to know and love. 💗
Now she enjoys all the splendor of our Savior’s Kingdom wrapped in His loving arms and on the day that God wills, she will great us with that radiant smile and have a grand story to fill us all in on!
Prayers for comfort and peace for those left on this earth to wait for that blessed reunion 🙏🏻

AN IRISH BLESSING in memory of Mom:

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Love Sandy. Love John. Love this entire family!!
I will never forget any of the times that I was able to spend with them; the trips to Mexico Beach that I was included in immediately pop into the forefront of my mind.
Sandy will be missed with heavy heart, but will be remembered with delightful memories of a lovely lady.
All my love,

Although the rest of my family did not have the pleasure of meeting Sandy, the sadness of a mother lost is felt by all. They wish you nothing but peace and wonderful memories.
We are here for you always,
Jeff, Jessi, Holly and Max Bokash

Irish Blessing

May the road rise
Up to meet you,
May the wind be
Always at your back,
May the sun shine
Warm upon your face;
May the rains fall
Soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in
The palm of His hand.

This poem was chosen by Kathleen in honor of our Meme:

God looked around His garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the Earth
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

Mrs Weldon,
While I never met you, I owe you a large debt for the gift you gave us in your daughter Heather!
Because of you and your husband, I have one of the best friends a girl could ask for!
I know she loved you very much and losing you is very hard for her and the whole family!
In your memory I promise to be here for her whenever she needs me for whatever she needs. Her family, her friends and I will take good care of her, as she has always taken such good care of all of us!
I just want to say thank you for raising such a beautiful daughter and I wish I had the chance to meet you to tell you in person!

Thank you for always being such a great friend; Sandy, I will truly miss your sincere hugs yet carry the best memories of our casual neighbor chats from the crazy things that would happen over the past ten years with the annual lightning of the fire place to can you get me back into our house stories (we have both locked ourselves out) to with me always just needing to bend your ear with what do I do next in my life. I love you from the bottom of my heart forever. Karena

Wow, how do I narrow down all the sweet memories with this family. Heather was our introduction into the Weldon family through Lassiter's cross-country team. The smiles were limitless as were the giggles. I know you are hurting right now but I know that you have a lot of very very special memories that your mom has left you with. Write them down as you start remembering them so they can not be forgotten. LOVE TO ALL
