Let the memories of your father provide you with comfort and serve as guidance. Gods Grace and Blessings to you and your family.
Thoughts and prayers to the family. Over the years I know Ms Diane who I have known many years would talk about all the wonderful times she shared with her daddy. She just glowed talking about her sweet mom and dad. Mr Williams was called home but has left family and friends here with I know many awesome stories / memories until one day he reunites with his family again . Continued prayers of comfort for the family .🙏🏻
