I am pleased to report that yesterday, January 5, 2007, my friends John and Allison Welch became parents for the first time. They named their baby girl Molly Ray Welch.
Everyone from the 2006 State House race will remember John and Allison, who contributed in so many ways -- from organizing our Relay for Life team to helping to writing out friend-to-friend postcards to working outside Chartiers 6 on Election Day. The photo at left of John and Allison is from our Night at the Wild Things.
Congratulations, John and Allison. I know the Holy Spirit will always be your guide.
Pace e Bene, Molly Ray. Welcome to the party.
