Reverend Eugene Williams

When my uncle married your daughter in 1975, you became his father-in-law. Your daughter gave birth in 1979 and that was when you became a grandpa. You lived long enough to see your great-great-grandchild, that's a privilege that many don't receive. You raised a family and you were a preacher, those were great things that you were able to achieve. It must have been nice to hold your great-great-grandson. If you hadn't died, today you would've turned ninety-one. Your life came to an end and you entered the Pearly Gates. After living a long life, you died at the age of eighty-eight. You preached the word of God when you became a Reverend. Today would've been your birthday if your life hadn't come to an end. [Dedicated to Eugene Williams (1931-2020) who died on October 1, 2020]
