I was honored enough to have Mimmy as my beautiful grandmother for 38 years of life! My entire childhood was basically spent at their house everyday & after school each day & probably more weekends there, then home!! I was always so excited to just be over there spending time with them. Growing up, us granddaughters just loved our time there. I never missed a beach trip with them until I was like 14 or 15. There were sooo many wonderful memories created in that condo at Myrtle Beach...memories that we’ll all hold even closer to our hearts now 💕 I love you so much Mimmy & I’ll be forever grateful for all our wonderful memories together 💞 Until we meet again, see you later! I love you....Krystal

To our dear Myrtle Beach friends of 40+ years, We have so many memories of being with Shirley, Glenn, and the entire Williams family. Our hearts ache for you. Shirley was a precious soul. She was one of the first people Carla met in week 29, and remembers their morning coffees together. Many times, it can be the quiet little things in life we cherish. Our love to you all.
George, Carla, Kendra, and Payton

To my brother, Glenn Williams
Your tender care and loving ways filled each of those remaining days with comfort, care, and courage for the final journey home. be at peace knowing what a wonderful blessing you have always been in Shirley's life. She was the sister i never had. For the Williams family, you are in my heart and thoughts. The love, care, support and devotion that you surrounded your loved one with was beautiful and such a comfort to them. May all the fond and precious memories you hold bring peace to your hurting hearts. May this comfort you and bring you peace in your time of sorrow.
