Condolences

Condolence From: Dennis DeLay
Condolence: Thanks Shirley. We are very sorry we missed the service.

To the "Welch" kids:
Kerm and Carol were very special people. During my student teaching and as a single beginning teacher at GHS Kerm was always there to help and support. Carol always there with a free meal and great piece of pie.. Kerm, always available to talk and listen, was a great mentor, both as a coach and as as a classroom teacher. We are terribly sorry we missed the service. Your parents drove all the way to Yates Center to attend our wedding. We hold the memories of your parents very close to our hearts. Dennis and Ellen DeLay Council Grove

Condolence From: Suzy Ryan (Stevenson)
Condolence: Mere words cannot suffice to give enough honor to Kerm Welch for all he did for me. If I lived closer, I would be there in person to pay my respect to the man who changed the course of my life. This may seem like hyperbole, but it is true. I could say all the things I loved about this man--his wit, his intellect, his discernment--but what he did for me was truly heroic. At 16 years old, I had to leave my home, so he made it possible for me to live with his brother and sister-in-law--two saints who took in a needy teenager. Who does that? Kerm does. I am so thankful for him, and he will always hold a special place in my heart.

Condolence From: Kathy (Shriver) Stanley
Condolence: I always enjoyed Kerm's sense of humor and ready smile. He was a great man, who made math bearable for those of us who were certain we'd never use it in the real world. My condolences to the family - I know he will be greatly missed.

Condolence From: Sheila Smith (Corwin)
Condolence: My sincere condolences to the family. It is hard to lose a loved one. Relish the fun times and happy memories always. He will always be close that way. I know he is in a better place and enjoying a new beginning in Heaven. May God be with you during this time and always.

Condolence From: Vernon and Sue Holbert
Condolence: May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days, as you grieve the loss of Kerm. He was a father, grandfather, great grandfather, son, husband, teacher and coach. So loved by his family, the community and the people he touched. He was like a father to Vernon and many others. May he rest in peace now that he is with his Lord and Savior. Our most heartfelt condolences.

Condolence:
Julie and family,

I was shocked last night to hear the sad news from Mark but relieved to know that he passed peacefully. Kerm will be missed tremendously by all who knew him. He and Carol were close friends to me since my arrival in the States back in 1976. I always treasured their friendship and love greatly. The Welch family will remain close and special for years to come.

Condolence From: Doug Linder
Condolence: One of the special educators who blessed me growing up. As he was also a man of faith, I'm sure God is returning that blessing to him now. May that fact comfort his loved ones in this time of grief. Thank you, Mr Welch, I look forward to seeing you again in his kingdom.

Condolence From: Judy(Patty)Cooper
Condolence: I send my condolences to all the Welch family members, I have had the pleasure of having some of one of Kermit’s children and a grandson in school. Rely on the wonderful memories of your father and grandfather to get you through the difficult moments. God Bless you all!

Condolence From: Gregg Horner
Condolence: Kathleen and I have fond memories of Mr. Welch. I was the new young and dumb teacher at GEHS for a couple of years. One of his favorite things to say to me was "It is Friday. Nobody ruins my Friday. Not even you, Horner." He was a very good man who affected so many young people in class and on the court. RIP Coach Welch.
