Mrs Williams touched many lives while she was at Floyd County High School, mine is so exception. I wanted to have study hall in the library desperately but I was one of those kids who was often told by Mrs Williams to quiet down. She really thought hard about giving me a chance and I hope she was as happy with that decision as I was. We talked daily about life, future and past. We discussed my plans for the future and she gave me her opinions which did not usually line up with mine. I followed her advise, everyone had been telling me to go to college and I was getting sick of hearing it but for some reason coming from her it all made sense. She completely changed my future path in life and I told her many times how grateful I was. I visited her at home once and chatted for a while, I wish I had done it more. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Elizabeth Williams was a very special lady and I will cherish every memory I have forever.

I always appreciated Elizabeth's sense of humor with that sincere smile on her face. I love her boys as well. They were very fortunate to have loving parents who looked out for their best interests. I send my condolences to all the family and thank God that I knew them.
