Monroe Dispatch - No Struggle, No Progress

I Am My Brother's Keeper


We all have a purpose in life to fulfill. Some people will try to persuade us to live the life that they believe we should live, but it is God who gives us a purpose to live, not only to worship/ serve Him, but to be a blessing to others. That was the kind of person that Joe Williams was to the residents that knew him in the Booker T community. He was well known as everyone knew Joe. He did odd jobs in the community, as he had a heart of gold, willing to do for others. Joe went home to be with the Lord on May 22, 2018. He is gone, but not forgotten. A celebration of Joe's life will be held June 30, 2018 at the Lillie Marbles Recreational Center, 2950 Renwick St. @ 1 p.m.

Louise Wilson, one of Joe's sisters who was close to him when he passed, wrote a tribute expressing her love and devotion to her brother, letting him know that he was not alone.

I am my brother's keeper. I will not stand idly by while he suffers for lack of medical care. I want him to succeed and have an opportunity to work hard and be rewarded for that work. I love him as I love my own self, and I want us to be safe from all threats, manmade and natural. I will not leave him to suffer because help does not arrive. I will not only tell him how good God is, I will show evidence of His wonderful works. I am my brother's keeper.

Anyone that is from the Booker T community that are still living in the area, or have since moved, you are welcome to be a part of Joe's celebration. Please keep Joe's family in your prayers.
