    Somehow I missed this until now (November). I have such fond memories of your dad. He was a dignified and disciplined man; an example for others. May your happy memories make your heart smile and the knowledge there is a life beyond this earthly one that he now enjoys. Prayers for all of the Williams family. Love to you all.
