  1. Trudy Nowell

    Dear Williams family, I am so sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one Charles. Please accept my most sincere condolences. May you find the comfort from the Scriptures at John 5:28,29 where Jehovah God promises a resurrection of our loved ones through his son Christ Jesus. And then the wonderful hope in the near future to the end of all the causes for our sufferings including sickness and death promised at Revelation 21:3-5. When I’ve lost loved ones these Scriptures have comforted me as I hope they will help your family also. In your time of need may God’s loving arms surround your family during this most difficult time of your lives. Please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss.
    Sincerely, Trudy Nowell – Panama City Beach, FL

    Charlie was a wonderful friend. We shared love of God, gardening , stories of India , his lodge , dancing, tractors and working. He said a few days ago, that “he was not going to plant a garden this year.” We did not know that this year, he would be in God’s garden. So glad we will resume fellowship in the presence of our Savior Jesus Christ. Love Shannon & Zelma Scott
