In Memoriam: Rev. Lacy A. Williams (1923-2010)
Today (Sunday, October 2, 2011) was a normal day in some respects. My mother and I arose early. I put the finishing touches on my Sunday school lesson on 1 Timothy. Then we both headed out for Sunday worship and fellowship with other believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
But today was also a difficult day, especially for my mother. It is the first anniversary of my stepfather's homegoing, and it's remarkable that this first anniversary was also on a Sunday — the Lord's Day — as it was last year.
We're taking it kind of quiet today and for the next few days. In the meantime, my family and I honor the memory of Lacy A. Williams, a gentle, quiet man of God who desired to honor the Lord with his life and in his calling as a preacher of the Gospel.
May I remain as faithful a servant of Christ for as long as Lacy, should the Lord in His grace allow me 87 years of service.
