My grandpa, Richard John Welter, passed away last night. His health was going downhill, and my mom says he was holding on to life, waiting for his other two son’s to arrive, to say goodbye. These pictures were taken roughly one month ago at a hospital in Anoka, Minn. While he was lying in his hospital bed, grandpa, the big Minnesota Twins baseball fan he is, was asking about the Twins and if they were on TV that night (They were, and won).
I was not with my grandpa at the time of his death, but when I was with him in Anoka, he seemed at peace and was as happy as anybody could be in his condition. He was a great grandpa, and I know that he will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Richard (Dick) John Welter.
