God certainly gained an angel. I will always love you and my faith in the good lord I would like to believe came from you. Your grand children will know of you and always love you. Rest easy angel

Mrs. Williams was a dear and sweet lady. One thing I know is she loved unconditionally everyone, as a Godly woman would. She also made an awesome caramel cake. I so loved the times she came and visited with us at our home. She will definitely be missed here on earth but I know she is in her Heavenly home now.

I worked at Belk during the seventies and eighties. Louise was the sweetest ladies I have ever known. She always had a smile on her beautiful face. I'm sure she's having a heavenly reunion with Mr. Lance and Mr. Maltose. My prayers are with Greg and his family.
