I have known the Williams family for many, many years haven gone to the same church. I always thought she had the nicest, lovely speaking voice. So soft...so proper....so gentle. She was the perfect lady and I admired that quality in her so much. I'm sorry I was unable to attend her services to pay my respects; i had an awful lot of admiration and respect for Mrs Williams! My deepest sympathies to Mr Malcom Wiliams and Patsy and Becky.

Vicki Joyner, Savannah, Ga

I am so sorry for your loss. Death brings a pain that cannot be compared to anything else. Please find comfort in Jehovahs promise found at Isaiah 25:8. He will do away with and ALL things that bring us pain. I hope this thought helps you get through this difficult time.

My condolences to Edwina's husband, family, and friends. John 5:28, 29 gives us hope concerning our loved ones who have passed away. It states, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."

B.B, , Ga

Love and Sympathy. She will truly be missed. Prayers are with the family.

What fond memories of Malcolm and Edwina William and Immanuel Baptist Church. We developed a close friendship with the Williams's including Patsy and Becky. I even spent two weeks training with the Coast Guard at their house once I completed active duty. It was interesting hearing about Great Dane Trailers and work there for Malcolm. It was a special time of rejoicing and remembering good times together. Jodie Galloway
