Obituary "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." II Timothy 2:6-8 On Tuesday, September 25, 2012, with his wife and family at his bed-side Lawrence David "Sam" Williams entered eternal rest at Gaylord Hospital In Wallingford, Connecticut. He grew up in a Christian home. He was nurtured in the faith at Ebenezer United Methodist Church, where he was baptized and confessed Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Later, he faithfully attended the Parker AME Zion Church in Meriden, Connecticut where he continued to grow in faith. He was born October 25, 1945, in Darlington County, South Carolina a son of the late James and Calpertia McPhail Williams.

POEM You are a good, just, righteous, and loving Father. Don't let us grow bitter in this shadow of death. But pierce our hearts with a joy that we can not fathom or understand. A joy that is above all that is corrupted here on earth. Jesus you wept over the death and so too, we weep. But it is a grief and a mourning that holds joy on the other side. You are conqueror of all; and so we trust you. We trust that you will do what is right, what is loving. Whether in death or in life your will is accomplished and you are sovereign. May we know your presence, Lord. Keep us ever aware of your loving hand guiding us through all things. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen. Written by, your great nephew Deaven Holley
