    Dr. Welborn will be sorely missed. I’ll always remember his wave as I drove down Uncle John’s Lane. Glasgow has lost one of its finest.

  2. Jolene and James Lyons says:

    We always enjoyed being around Steve and Sandy. Although we have been away from Glasgow for some time we still have fond memories of our friends there. We know Steve will be missed. Our prayers are with you Sandy.
