Candlelight vigil

ST. PETERSBURG – The community came out to the Carter G. Woodson African American Museum last Wed., Aug. 12 to a candle vigil for the three Welch sisters who lost their lives in a tragic car accident.

Chair of the Woodson Museum, Terri Lipsey Scott, Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin, Pastor Manuel Sykes, Minister Watson Haynes, Pastor Louis Murphy, Sr., Dr. Cody Clark and the girls’ aunt Sharon Welch all choked back the tears in front of hundreds of people while remembering the lives of La’Mour, India and Tehira Welch.

The night was filled with song, prayers and loving tributes to God’s chosen angels.
