Bill,Jean Ray, Jason and Family.

Please know that our prayers are with you in the loss of Mrs. Weddle. I can relate since I lost my own mother last Feb at age 95. You can have consolation in the wonderful memories of her and in knowing she is now with the Lord. May God give you peace during the coming days and months.

For Walter Weddle and Family: We are Nancy and Eugene Kanter, Mr. Weddle- you sold us our home on 5265 Fairfield Boulevard in early 1971, and we are still living in this great house. We wanted you to know how saddened we were to learn of the passing of your dear mother. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy and the hope that the knowledge that you are in the thoughts and prayers of so many friends can sustain you and give you strength during this most difficult period.

I have often thought of the passing of a loved one as a more

reason to be there. First to see our LORD, GOD our Father. What a day to wait for. Mrs. Weddle was a

sweet Christian. I know the streets of gold are taking her around beauty she has never known.

May our LORD place HIS arms around you and give you peace within.

To the family of Ms. Weddle sorry for your loss. I pray the Lord will give you a comforter and give you peace. I did not meet Ms. Weddle personally but I have spoken with her over the phone, by way of Mickey Anderson my sister and Ms. Weddle’s friend. May the Lord be with you all at this trying time.

To the Weddle Family,

I was very fortuante as a young person growing up in Coleman Place/Kempsville Church. One of my many treasured memories are of Mrs. Weddle. She always made me feel important and loved. She would smile at me clap her hands and cup my face in her hands and tell me she loved me and if I sang a special she made her way to me to give some of the strongest and best hugs anyone could give. What a blessing to all. Now she lives in our hearts and memories . Her memory eternal for us all.

Love and prayers

Brenda and Charlie
