Nedra, Monae, Sly & The Williams Family!
To my Family my you find strength and comfort in your Family and Friends!
Know that we all need each other in this difficult time.... Let go and let God!!!
Today in church you had to be there to hear all the good things that Gooda did... Especially how he would ride his wheel chair in the rain covered himself with a trash bag, to make it to church! This evening at my Godsister’s house listening to gospel music that reminded us of this wonderful man! Nedra, Sly & Monae he is Going Up Yonder To Be With His Lord!!!
