I think that that was one of the most beautiful services that I have ever seen. Even though her heart was breaking, Rita managed to convey the joy that Mary brought into people's lives. May God continue to walk with your family during these trying times. My love and prayers are with you forever.

Ray, Rita and Dennis, What a fitting and meaningful service for Mary. Rita, Your comments will long be remembered as a daughter’s loving tribute to a sweet Mama who loved her family and her Lord. You and Dennis are so fortunate to have grown up with Ray and Mary as your parents. Our continued prayers are with each of you.

I so loved Ms. Mary!!! She always loved to tell me how beautiful the decorations were at the ladies meeting & how she had enjoyed the meeting! I have so many fond memories of her & Mr. Ray!! What an example of a Godly Couple!!! I will miss seeing y'all together & seeing her being Rita’s side-kick! The service today was a beautiful tribute to who she was! Rita, I’m so glad you brought her by for a visit with my Mama on Dec 2. My Mama loved Ms. Mary!! My Mom, Dave, Aunt Rhoda, Kason & Nevaeh were all gathered around my phone to watch the service & not a dry eye in the bunch when you finished your tribute! Loved it & I know she would have loved that Corning Ware dish! Praying for you all & especially praying for you Dennis for a complete recovery! Love you all very much❤️
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mrs.Mary seemed to win the door prizes every month at our meetings at Pine Grove.She was always smiling,and had a sweet little chuckle.God did something wonderful for her(AND US) Dec.14. She made a funny remark and all of a sudden the whole event turned into a Appreciation of Mrs. Mary Night! It was just a blessing from Our Lord! He wanted her to be honored ,and she was.

Dear Williamson family, this was a beautiful and touching service for Miss Mary. Miss Mary had such a sweet and gentle spirit. She was always glad to see you when she joined you, Rita, at the ladies get togethers at Pine Grove. Miss Mary simply loved her family and friends and Lord. May the Lord comfort you all during this time.

Bro.Ray, Rita and Dennis, we are so sorry for your loss and ours. We were unable to attend the funeral service but did watch the livestream. Beautiful service and becoming for your wife and mother.

Ray, Rita, and Dennis - You know how much I love each and everyone of you, and of course Mary. Your whole family has always been such a sweet shining light for Christ in my life from the first day we met probably 38 years ago when I came to Louisiana from Kentucky. My prayers will continue for you. I loved Mary so much - such a sweet spirit. She spoke volumes without saying a word. I love you all!! Love, Cindy

Rita and family, My heart aches for the pain I know you must be feeling at the loss of your mother. On the other hand, my soul rejoices in knowing that this precious soul is resting with Our Father in Heaven. I pray the Comforter rests on you and your family during these dark days. I love you, my family.

Rita, I was so sorry for you, your Dad and family upon hearing that your sweet Mom had moved to heaven. She was such a delight...soft spoken, kind and there was always a glow of God’s presence that lite up her face as she smiled. The last time I saw her was at the Women’s Thanksgiving celebration. She seemed settled, sure and filled with great peace. She’ll be missed by many, but also remembered with tremendous fondness. Much love...Susan

Judy Heidenreich left a message on January 3, 2021:
I grew to so appreciate Mrs. Mary during her time with our Pine Grove Women's Group - and the times she came with Rita to do all the various jobs she (Rita) had taken on at church. For the longest time, I couldn't remember her name, I just called her "Rita's Mama" in my head, so even after I DID remember it, I still called her Rita's Mama, and I think she enjoyed the joke. She came to our Christmas party a few weeks ago and was in good spirits and seemed to feel good physically. She didn't bring a present for our game, because she didn't need a present. She just enjoyed being with us. And we enjoyed her being there. She was always so cheerful, so positive. I grew to love her dearly, and I'll miss her presence. She was a Great Lady.

Aunt Mary will be greatly missed, she always had a kind word for us when ever we needed it. She was always thoughtful and caring, very devoted to her family. My girls nicked named her the "Good Aunt Mary" and yes she truly was.

Ray, Rita and Dennis I wish I could be there with you during this very difficult time. Your family has always been there for us and we know Mary will be missed greatly. I will always remember her beautiful smile and the many cups of coffee we drank at the table in your house. I know she is heaven with my parents probably drinking coffee with them! One day we will all be together with her walking the streets of heaven.
