Blessing to you old man, this is a tuff thing to sit here and write up to you , this is hard for any of us to grasp and deal with, u were an angry but happy man, u were mean but that just fit who you were but above all we seen the big heart you had when it not only came to us but the love of your children and family, you may not of shown it but we new for as much as you spoke of each and every one,, and this is heartbreaking to say the least to have to tell you this but no matter what type of person you were and who you were we will miss hearing you and seeing you day in and day out, I'm sorry senior I wish we could of did more but we are glad for the time we did get to know you and all the time my family did spend with you.
Prayers to the entire williams family for our hearts and prayers will be with.
