On early Thursday morning, April 28, 2011, at the McLeod Regional Medical Center, Florence, SC, God Almighty looked down from His heavenly throne upon Kay Louise Williams Tisdale and said" Come unto Me and take your rest."

Kay Louise Williams Tisdale, a daughter of the late Alcess Bull Williams, was born November 28, 1955 in Kingstree, SC. She was preceded in death by two brothers and a sister, namely, Willie John Williams, Jasper Tisdale and Mattie Wilson.

She worked for over thirteen years with Travanol Laboratories, Inc. For many years, she was self-employed as the owner and operator of Something Special Gift Shop.

"Nana", as she affectionately called by her grandchildren, had an unselfish and giving spirit which was displayed in each and every one of ber floral arrangements. Her caring and sharing personality was evident in all of her life living.

Her last words to her family were that she knew where her strength came from and she knew that everything was going to be alright. She was confident that her hands were in the Master's Hand and He was going to take care of her every need and desire.

To My Family and Friends
Hold on to my spirit
Hold on to my soul
For I am one with God
Walking the Streets of Gold.
I know you are hurting
But there is nothing anyone can say
My Father has called me home
To celebrate my rebirth today ..
I will always be with you
Every second of everyday
I am your guardian angel
And I will never go away.
May my smile give you strength.
And my spirit bring you no harm
When we meet again
I'll be waiting with open arms.
Love, Kay
