Remembering Ingrid Williams

(WVUE) -

Welcome into Juan’s World where there’s sadness over the loss of 44-year old Ingrid Williams. She’s the wife of former Pelicans head coach Monty Williams and she was killed in a car crash, Wednesday night, in Oklahoma City.
 
I wish I could tell you that I knew Mrs. Williams well. But, I can’t. I‘ve never met her. I don’t even remember ever seeing her, with coach, at the games or elsewhere.
 
But, based on the man I know, her husband Monty, she must’ve been an amazing woman because she’s married to an amazing man that always had a way of putting basketball into perspective.
 
Monty was a man of faith. He believed strongly in the importance of family. “Love thy brother” is the way he chose to live his life. He believed in the power of prayer and he preached what he practiced daily.
 
And it’s a good bet that the strength and resiliency that he showed, on a daily basis, to all of us, he got from his wife, Ingrid.  And it’s something that they, no doubt, tried to instill in their five kids every day.
 
And that is the toughest part of this story. It’s one of loss. Youngest to oldest, five to seventeen, the Williams’ have lost their mother and Coach Monty has lost his Best Friend. It’s the kind of wound that cuts so deeply that no amount of time will heal.
 
So, as we go forward, we do so with Coach Williams and his family in our thoughts. Life has forever changed for them and for us because there’s another angel in the sky…to watch over us all.
Thank you Ingrid Williams
