Brenda, Tammy, Brad, Danny and Loretta, I am so very sorry for the loss of your father and husband. I have so many wonderful memories. I have been blessed to have known your family my entire life. As a very small child I had the pleasure of hearing great anointed preaching and singing from Bro. Wells at my dad’s church and then as an adult when he was my pastor. Some months back I was so surprised when he and Loretta came to our church in Middletown. It was so good to hear his great deep voice when he and Loretta sang. What great and fond memories! Your dad will be greatly missed. Father God I pray that you comfort all the family in this time of need. We all know that Bro. Wells was released from all pain and suffering and went into your arms into beautiful Heaven. I ask you to strengthen all the family in the days ahead as they mourn. Wipe their tears and fill their hearts with such peace and love for one another and draw the family closer together than they’ve ever been before. May Bro. James Wells rest in peace. PRAYERS and LOVE to all.

TAMMY KING - May 30, 2012

We love you dad and we will miss you.
