Condolences

As a lifelong member of the Methodist Church, I remember Pastor Neal Williams while growing up in Carroll County with my grandparents, the Rev. Alton and Mildred Smith, who are long since passed. They and Pastor Neal traveled in many of the same circles as Methodist pastors. As a child, I remember him as he was a very friendly. outgoing and nice Christian man. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. – Elizabeth Whitaker Marino
