I knew Weldon from our high school days although I lived in Blackstone. We reconnected at an RPI (VCU) reunion and went on several mission trips to Honduras. I'm so very sorry to hear of his passing. My sincere condolences to the family. I know he was very fond of his grandchildren.

We're so sorry to hear about your dad. It's a very hard thing to lose a parent, but you can cherish his memory.

Our world has lost a genuine faithful servant to many. We were team members together at Chesterfield police as volunteers. My sympathy to his family and friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Weldon as a volunteer with the police. We had a great time with the dogs. He had a beautiful smile and a great sense of humor.
