It is with heavy heart that I report the passing of my father Charles S. Welch.
Yesterday morning my father died peacefully in his sleep. This past week has been a whirlwind of family and friends sharing together with dad. He was in good spirits joking as usual right up until he fell asleep on Sunday night.
He was at peace with his final journey and I was so glad he spent his final days in hospice care. The entire staff made it easier for him and our family. I cannot thank the team at the Leo Center for Caring enough.
Visitation will be Friday, January 30th at Paul W. Harris Funeral Home in Irondequoit, NY from 4 – 7 PM and a memorial service will be held Saturday, January 31st at Seneca United Methodist Church beginning at 2 PM.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be directed to Seneca United Methodist Church, 121 Scholfield Rd., Rochester, NY 14617; Project Glory Home, C/O Annie’s Angels 1500 Portland Ave. Rochester, N.Y. 14621; CRU 508 Dewey Street Royal Oak, MI 48067 or give online; Leo Center for Caring, 1500 Portland Ave. Rochester, N.Y. 14621.
Thank you so much for all the words of caring we have received over this past week. Knowing so many of you were think of and praying for my father has meant a lot to me.
