I remember the 1st time I met Doll, after she heard my name she laughed and gave me a hug. I was "Skeeta" and not once would I ever correct Doll. There was never a dull moment at her house. It was plenty of love and laughter always. I am praying for Williams family strength during this difficult time. Sending hugs to each and everyone of yall. Love Quita 💙

I remember as a child, how my mother use to sit on our front porch and watch the kids play, as she looked on at the evening sky. How I long for those quiet times with her. My mom was one of a kind. I always thought that I had the most beautiful mother in the world, and I always wanted to show her off. But she was a hard worker for her family and ever rarely had the time. I remember she worked two jobs. Just to make ends meet, and to be able to provide the things she needed for her family needs. I have always had my mother In my life, and I don't know what I am going to do with out her. She taught me many things in life. One the love of GOD, and how to love each other, and what family was all about, the love and closeness. She was a very strong woman, and she instilled that in us all, she taught us how to stand. And she was always about what was right. For that I will always be thankful and cherish her for that. Lady bug you are truly going to be missed. I love you to the heavens and back. And you will never ever be forgotten. RIHP Beloved, your baby girl Delores, love you aka Doll Baby!!
