This is the post no parent ever wants to share. A lot of you know Connie Williams -- either from the Stampaway USA convention in Cincinnati, Verses Rubber Stamps, or when she had Stamp Your Art Out in Kenwood. Connie posted the following on her Facebook page Wednesday morning . . .
“Our son, William, at the age of 30, passed peacefully at 4:52 am after a two year struggle with congestive heart failure. From the beginning my prayer was...he is in your hands, Lord. I know my prayers have been answered. Amanda flew in late last night and was able to say she loves him and a few hours earlier our priest came to give him the sacrament of the sick. He is in God's hands now. Thank you for the prayers and support you have given to Bob, Amanda & Matt and me.”
I have known Bill since he was 12 years old, and my heart breaks for Connie, Bob and the rest of their family. In recent years, he drove to our mail center and brought me Connie's booth to take to shows for her -- always accompanied by his dog, Baby.
What most of you do with this hobby is make cards -- and Connie has spent years making it possible for you to learn how to be more creative in making them. It seems fitting to shower her with your creations at this most difficult time . . .
