  14. Donna Williams Brooks says:

    I read of Great Aunt Irene’s passing on the Glasgow Daily Times website.. I often wondered how she was as I knew she was the last of the Williams brothers and sisters living. It had been several years since I saw her at a reunion at Joanne Foster Park when Bud and Bob were still living. I hope it will be okay to contact either of you in a few weeks when things settle down. My deepest
    sympathy to all the family.

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of your Mother, your Meemaw, your wife, and all relatives for your loss. Our hearts are especially heavy for those of Linda, Lois, Joe, Jim, Missy, Andy, Red, Jeff and his family. I am glad I was able to see her at Missy’s wedding for it had been a long time since I had seen her. I know you are all glad she lived to see that beautiful event. May God strengthen all of you with wonderful memories and the great times you shared with her.

    Love, Carolyn and Dave
