I always remember how nice she was to me and we would go to Wednesday's night service and she would cook breakfast for us instead of dinner I always consider it a special treat. All my heart goes out to the entire Williamson family.

Sammie Joyce was a wonderful mother-in-law. She was an avid reader and I loved hearing what she was currently reading. She had a lovely, hearty laugh that I will always remember. I admired her work ethic and her independence. God blessed me when I got her as my mother-in-law.
