One of the founding members of our WDHRCCC's organization, Margaret Yandle Williams passed away on March 22, 2011. 


Our thoughts and payers are with all her family and friends.


We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too,
We think of you in silence, we often speak your name.
All we have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake with which we’ll never part.
God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts.
