  3. My cousin Kelly was a favorite. He always told me to come over here so he, “could love on me” with a big hug. I always felt like Kelly was protecting me when he was around. I admired his great sense of humor and that he loved his dog. I expect there is a party going on in heaven right now with Aunt Marie, Miles and Kelly. My heart is with you and my prayers.

  4. So sorry for you great loss Williamson Family,

    We have lived across the street from Kelly for over 10 years now, he was a great neighbor and friend. He always was a helping hand and was always so nice to our kids.

    Here lately he would often come over and pick me up in his golf cart in need of my help because he got his TV off the cable input.

    We always enjoyed visiting with him and Big Dog, those two were inseparable!

    He is so missed, God bless you all!

Of course, he dropped it off with my sister and daughter, but he was so kind. He always waved when he drove by the house, we lived a few blocks away, and he even use to babysit my oldest granddaughter 20 years ago. He was a man of honor and he will truly be missed. Rest in peace Kelly. We love you.

  8. Cousin Kelly used to ride a unicycle, he was older than me and usually played with my sister Tonya. I always wanted them to include me because Kelly liked to have fun but Kelly and Tonya would run off and I just sat and pouted. I have many fond memories of Kelly because he was a character and knew how to make you laugh. Thank you Kelly. Brent, Shannon, Lisa , Nonnie and Callie Marie, I am so sorry to hear that Kelly has passed but I am greatful that he will be with Firman, Marie, Miles and all the other Rascos and Williamson’s that have past. Rest In Peace Kelly much love from the Laich family. Walter, Betty, and Lana

  9. Thinking of my cousin makes me smile because he often used expressions that were as colorful as they were shocking… the biscuits weren’t just good, they “make you want to spank yo’ mama”! He had a youthful maybe even a bit childish sense of humor and he was often enthusiastic. His constant, loyal Big Dog companion was a perfect match for Kelly. Whatever burdens he had, finally he can lay them down and join his mother Marie and brother Miles in the big blue Yonder. Love to the Williamson family always, Lou

  10. My deepest condolences to y’all I knew Kelly along time my dad used to work for him along time ago and Kelly was always a stand up guy he will be truly missed
