On February 10th Monty Williams’ wife, Ingrid, died from injuries she suffered after her car was struck head-on by an SUV that crossed the center line after losing control. The driver of that car also died. Monty and Ingrid Williams have five children.
Williams, who is a retired professional basketball player and currently an assistant coach for the Oklahoma City Thunder, gave a powerful and stirring eulogy at the funeral.
He speaks about how despite the toughness of the situation, “…it will work out because God causes all things to work out. You just can’t quit, you can’t give in.”
It’s a speech filled with passion, love, forgiveness and faith and is a shining example of a man relying on his love for the Lord to rise above tragedy.
