My name is Lorenzo Demetrius Williams I am the eldest son of lorenza AKA Lolo the baby girl of mr and mrs. George L Williams. I want to talk about my memories of my grandmother. My grandmother was a very loved and special strong woman. Sometimes I think she had special powers. Because everything she told me it always happens. Don't let her knock on wood. She used to tell me don't take no wooden nickels and you make your bed hard you laying it. I never understood what she was talking about until I got older and started doing time Behind Bars. Now I see what she meant about the bed being hard because these bunk beds are really hard in here LOL. The reason I'm here is because I took wooden nickels. My grandmother all ways found a way to talk to me and hit meet with deep words. Words like what you do in the dark will come to the light. Get a real job son anything beats a blank. She told me that because I used to complain about working for minimum wages but whenever she talked to me she made me feel special no matter who was in the room. . I'll never forget when she would take me shopping for school clothes her and my T Jones AKA Lolo they are resting in peace in heaven looking over me saying he'll get it together. They're right I will. I know what I'm going to do and how I'm going to do it. And legit this time Mama and Grandmama it will be legit. I'll make you proud you just keep watching. Granny you have always been there for me you have always given me unconditional love. .you were there when no one else was there and I'm going to do that for my children when I get out of this mess. I want to thank you I want to thank you. I was blessed to have a granny like you tell Papa and Aunt Paula I said I love them too because they were there for me also. And Granny Tell My Mama I miss her and I love her in the same goes for you always and forever. Your grandson Lorenzo Demetrius Williams AKA Lo AKA Doughboy AKA Monica.

My name is George Z. Williams, I am the grand son of George L. Williams and Ruby I. R. Williams. And this is my story of my beloved Grand Mother aka" Doll Baby" The Goat!

My favorite memory of Doll my Grand Mother, is being able to spend more time with her before she passed. Seeing her smile and that she was at peace. Seeing even though she was in pain, she absolutely enjoyed every single moment spent with her family. Oh yeah, also how she would call my daughter Ta-Ta instead of Na-Na lol!! Doll we miss you so much baby, there will never be another You! You were one remarkable Mother and Wife and Grand Mother, and we just don't know what we are going to do with out you beloved, but you taught us how to stand, and this we will do, we love and miss you forever, gone but never forgotten! We Love and Miss you Grand Mother!!! Give the family our love and tell them we will all meet up again in that place we all call Heaven, if GOD'S willing, Amen! Please keep praying for Us, because we all still need it!
