Anthony Davis writes heartfelt essay about the passing of Ingrid Williams

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The Pelicans and the rest of the NBA have spent the last week and a half mourning the loss of Ingrid Williams, the wife of former New Orleans Head Coach Monty Williams. Anthony Davis attended the ceremony where his former coach laid his wife to rest.

Monday, Davis posted an essay about the meaning of family in the aftermath of the loss. Here's the open letter in it's entirety:

You can't choose family. Those are the people that God puts around you, to help you and to guide you. That's why family means everything to me; family can't be replaced. And so I'm heartbroken right now because Monty and Ingrid Williams are like a second family to me.
