Hey, Mae, what’s up? How’s the afterlife? I’m speaking for everybody, when I say, “Mae, was a very kind woman, she always tried to help when she could and it didn’t matter who the person was, she had a big heart and she knew what to do with it, and we’ll greatly miss you. There’s so much that I could say bout her, but that would take a lifetime and nobody has that amount of time. So, I’ll just say the important things, you were a mom, a grandmother, a supporter, a friend, and now you’re an angel. Rest in peace Mae! We’ll miss you! We’ll always love you!

I remember as a young kid and you as my grandmother always telling me stories you always shared your mind with me even if you had trouble hearing that nevered stopped you, you use to rat your kids out to me and laugh about it I always thought that was funny, you showed me pictures and memories you appreciated what you had to give. I remember you always laughing you even laughed at the nursery home 2 months before you had died, I dont think you really knew who I was but you knew that I was your grandaughter you sat right across the bench from me evertime I looked at you, you would laugh and smile. I didnt care how old you were or how you looked you were the same old grandma I knew but with health issues. I know I wasnt ever grown up by your side but you were a great woman and still are. Your free now with god and you dont have to go through aches or pains anymore or having to lose the thought who you are and others. You dont have to go through that anymore your in a better place. I love you grandma

-love your grandaughter Jasmine

Mae, I am so glad that God gave me the privlige of knowing you. You were someone that would light up my day when I saw you. I remember that you would see me coming down the lobby of the Windsor Manor, to go do something, and you would hurry over to the door and say wheres my hug or you can’t go out. Little did you know I would have hugged you anyway. You were my friend and I will miss you, until I see you again. To the whole Williams family I will keep you all in my prayers. Just remember Mae’s body is goen, but her spirit is with you, so as long as you remember her she will never be truly goen.

Sorry to hear of Mae’s death. I knew her when I worked with the Diocese as a journalist and saw her at the chancellory several times per week. I remember her as a friendly, competent worker who always greeted me with a smile, as someone who knew how to laugh. I always enjoyed seeing her.

To Mae’s family: I have wonderful memories of times I stopped at the diocesan chancery – Mae was always smiling and helpful and I’m sure you miss her very much, but she is receiving her well-deserved reward.
