"I just don’t know what to say or where to start. Daddy, you fought harder than those of us that are in good health. For 15 years, you FOUGHT!!! You truly outlived moments where we thought you wouldn’t make it!" she wrote.

Williams said her mother, Anita Williams, sang to him the night before and he "looked so content and had a look of peace in [his] eyes."

"You weren’t in any pain either. The Lord took you in his arms this morning and I’m so thankful that you are resting in Him! I love you Daddy!" she concluded, sharing her father's lifespan: Nov. 13, 1952 to Dec. 20, 2020.
