Hi, I’m BL Williams. I’m the last of four of Grady Williams Jr’s children. As many of you know, Grady passed on Friday, October 21st. Our family and close friends are tremendously impacted, saddened, and heartbroken by this loss. At the same time, dad suffered a great deal, and for quite a while, and we did not want that to continue. He is now at peace.
I also want to extend my gratitude to those who contacted me, my family, and others who were impacted by dad’s passing. That meant a lot. That support has given us strength to carry on as we endure the process of healing.
The reason why I decided to post this v-log is to inform you all about the funeral services that will be taking place to honor dad. They will be happening this Friday and Saturday. This Friday will be dad’s wake, which will be held at Evergreen Memorial Funeral Home at 7pm-7:45pm. As for Saturday, the Dad’s funeral will be held at Cedar Crest Church of Christ at 10:30am. There will be a reception afterwards. Cedar Crest is our “family church” as my dad, grandparents, and others attended that church.
We will also have interpreters for both services. If you are DeafBlind or need other means of access, please feel free to contact me about the services you will need, and I’ll work towards having those services ready.
Again, thank you for all of your support and love. I love you all
