I am so sorry to hear of Wray's death. I so enjoyed spending time with her at the Davis reunion. Butch and family I will keep you in my prayers. Butch Davis really miss seeing you. Love, Allison

Allison E. Knight, Georgetown, SC

Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your loved one. Death is not an easy thing to accept, it is a painful time in any family to experience. Please take comfort in the assurance of the Bible at Revelation 21:4 that soon death and sorrow and pain will be done away with. Also at John 5:28&29 Jehovah God promises a resurrection of our dead loved ones in a paradise earth. There is hope of seeing loved ones again.

Wray will be remembered for her loving spirit and sense of adventure, especially in France when she got on the wrong train! Even traveling with Wray was an adventure. It enabled me to walk around our hotel in Paris for a couple of hours until she arrived. Emmaline (Cooper) and I were quite concerned, but Wrap, as usual, was delighted by her experience. Love & prayers for all, Carolyn

Carolyn Oxenrider (formerly Cooper), Savannah, GA

Dear Williamson Family, I had the joy of spending time with the beautiful and gentle-spirited Wray during our Scottish pilgrimage in May of last year, led by her brother, Orion. What a truly delightful lady, lovely inside and out. Her quick smile and keen ability to see people, situations, and places made her a special companion among all the pilgrims. I am very thankful to have had the honor to have met her, and to have spent a short time in her presence. May God's peace comfort you in your loss.

Nancy, Ann, and family, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Robert Brunn, Savannah , GA

I never know what to say, Maggie. Having just lost our mom, I know how you feel, except I think your relationship with yours was closer than mine, so the loss must be even more difficult. You are precious and deeply loved by all of us. I don't know if Paul and I will make the drive up. We'll talk about it. ox ox ox
