A Hero~

To quote his precious daughter Stephanie, Judge Tony Welborn was A Hero to ALL who knew him.
You may remember back in May he won reelection for Chief Magistrate Judge by a landslide and we were all SO proud of him!
What you didn't know was the amazing battle he was fighting against cancer and last evening he was healed in heaven!
His family is doing awesome and we are spending lots of time together as family.
Tony was the Hart County Chief Magistrate Judge, he was Captain of the Hartwell Police Department from 1975 to 2009, member of the Hartwell Kiwanis Club, American Legion 109 and the Georgia Peace Officers Association. Tony was a member of Cross Roads Baptist Church, Deacon, former Sunday School Teacher, Church Trustee, played with the Praise Team, and a US Air Force Veteran of the Vietnam War.  
We LOVE you sweet Tony and we will miss you beyond words~
Please pray for Susan, Jason & Melissa/kids, and Stephanie & Wade/kids during the next days and weeks.
