Weldon, you were the perfect person to be named after my Daddy. You had his kind, generous heart. I remember your sweet way and great sense of humor. Like your older brother Bobby, you were always kidding around and picking on us but always in fun. You always looked after your family and siblings. You will be sorely missed. RIP my cousin.

Love, Linda Kay

I've known Weldon for 43 years, I've worked along side Him and Sheila at the Gretna location of Topper World. He was always there for what ever need that arose. He would pick me up in the morning on the weekends on his way into work. He would do anything for anybody. He will certainly be missed. My prayers and heart go out to the family in these sad moments. I'll always remember him as a very fair and friendly person.
