The former things have passed away.”I hope these promises from GOD will bring a measure of comfort, please keep those memories of your loved one close.Sincerely Mrs, Sandi Watkins

Becky,On behalf of George Raines, he wants to extend his deepest sympathy to all. Dad is 93yo and remembers all the Williams family names and stories perfectly. He has such fond memories of your family members and can tell about times when you all would come to Grandma`s house including your siblings. He recalls the children and the big house in the back field. He is sorry for your loss.
So very sorry to hear of Henry`s passing. I will always remember the great times we always had with our cousins at Grandma`s house on Sundays. Especially for Becky, my prayers and thoughts are with you.
Thank you for your service, Mr. Williams. The members of VFW Post 8947 express their deepest sympathies.
