Heaven’s doors opened early Tuesday, March 29, 2022, at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown, Md. The Angels of the Lord came for our beloved brother, Mr. Lawrence Edward Williams. He was born April 2, 1952 to the late Samuel T. Williams and Janie R. Williams.

Lawrence accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at the St. Union Missionary Baptist Church, where he sang in the choir. His birthplace was Jackson, where he attended Harper High School. Jackson was always very dear to his heart, he never forgot you! Lawrence moved to Mobile to live with sister, Eartha, and later relocated to Waldorf, Md., with his brother, Clarence. Lawrence later became a resident at Chesapeake Nursing Home in Lexington Park, Md.
