My parents! My mother’s name is Linda and she is the strongest woman I know. She has been through a lot and she came out on the other side. We’re so much alike that sometimes we argue, but no matter what – I know she loves me and I hope she knows I love her too.
My father’s name is Jackie Ray Williams. Well, it was. My father served in the military, and I believe he was a decent man- most of the time. I’ve heard stories about when he drank, and they make me sad. He passed away in 1981, when I was three years old, of carbon monoxide poisoning. I never really knew him, and I regret that. My grandmother (Veda Mae Williams) told me a few times that he was a Christian when he died, and that is my only hope of ever seeing him again; Heaven. May your soul rest with God, Daddy.
