Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our first born baby, Charity Nichole Williams who was born in Dallas, TX on December 11, 1976 and passed away on June 30, 2004 at the age of 27. We will remember her forever

For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down--when we die and leave these bodies--we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. 7That is why we live by believing and not by seeing. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.  2 Corinthians 5:1, 6-8 New Living Translation


IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW
by Kim Noblitt


Our prayers have all been answered, I finally arrived.
The healing that had been delayed has now been realized.
No one's in a hurry, there's no schedule to keep.
We're all enjoying Jesus, just sitting at His feet.

If you could see me now,
I'm walking on streets of gold.
If you could see me now,
I'm standing tall and whole.
If you could see me now,
You'd know I'd seen His face.
If you could see me now,
You'd know the pain's erased.
You wouldn't want me to ever leave this place
If you could see me now.

My light and temporary trials have worked out for my good,
To know it brought Him glory when I misunderstood.
Though we've had our sorrows, they can never compare.
What Jesus has in store for us no language can share.

If you could see me now,
I'm walking streets of gold.
If you could see me now,
I'm standing tall and whole.
If you could see me now,
You'd know I'd seen His face.
If you could see me now,
You'd know the pain's erased.
You wouldn't want me to ever leave this place
If you could see me now.

Her legacy
Charity showed us how to live and die with joy in our hearts  


The Lord sent a beautiful baby girl into the lives of her parents, Charles Dewey and Lynne Rochelle McGraw Williams on December 11, 1976 in Dallas, Texas.  Her father named her Charity Nichole.  “Charity” was the perfect name for this child because she was full of love.  From the beginning of her life, Charity was full of life and had a bubbly personality.  She was educated in Dallas, Texas through the eighth grade, and attended Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver, Colorado.  She graduated from Thomas Jefferson in 1995.
 


Charity attended Paine College in Augusta, Georgia.  During that time she mysteriously started having seizures.  In the face of many visits to doctors, hospitals and even with surgery, the sudden onset of epilepsy was never explained.  Charity's best friends, Mikelyn, Shaquana and Takietha took very good care of her while she was there, and continued to remain friends with her throughout the rest of her life.  Her friends are pictured in the Photo Album.

In spite of her illness, Charity’s personality never changed, and she never complained.  She was a living testimony.


Her friends knew her as ‘Tigger’ for her shining bouncy personality.  She always brought smiles to every conversation and situation.  If there was a problem or sadness, she could always come up with a funny face or silly joke to lighten the mood.  Most people didn’t know her more mellow side when she liked to sit and watch cartoons, but she was still always upbeat. 

Charity accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior at the age of 8 and served Him faithfully until her home-going.  She used her musical talents to enhance praise and worship in the churches where she served, Cornerstone Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, Tabernacle Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia, New Hope Baptist Church and Abundant Life Baptist Church in Denver, Colorado.  Wherever she served, she always kept the choir members in line.  She got that trait from her grandmother, the late Iva Lois Wiggins and her mother Lynne.

Despite her illness, Charity never lost her bubbly personality or her upbeat attitude.  She also never wavered in her faith in God.  This is the last entry in her journal:


    There have been times lately when I get frustrated about different things.  It could be about this judge I have for SSI stuff is trying to be as cheap as possible.  Sure I want to take that frustration out on him, but I know that won’t help my situation.  So I say, “Hallelujah anyhow”.  My frustration could be about the doctors who don’t know what to do and tell me that they’ve run out of options.  But if I had seizures regularly, I’d be doing a whole lot worse than I am now.  So I say “Hallelujah anyhow”.


I may get frustrated about my memory loss.  Sure there are folk who are surprised that I have no recollection of who they are.  But if I was doing a lot worse, I’d most likely not remember my family.  I can’t fathom that.  I thank God for giving me the strength to keep me from losing my memory completely.  “Hallelujah anyhow”.


 I was feeling quite low, but the Lord knew when I needed revival.  I thank Him for bringing Rev. Britt here and for speaking through him.  Even when he was getting hoarse, he thanked You for allowing him to be able to lean on You.  He said “Hallelujah anyhow”.  That filled my soul and still does.  So, whatever I go through, either good or bad, I’ll say “Hallelujah anyhow”!


May 27, 2004


We, her family and friends will always remember Charity and praise God that He allowed Charity to minister to us through her life.  In spite of having heavy hearts and missing her, we say what she said: HALLELUJAH ANYHOW!!!!!!
