Mary and Family,
Your mother Priscilla was a beautiful lady in many ways. We were so very sorry to learn of her passing.
As God holds her sweetly in his arms, we will keep you in our prayers.
Love to you all.

Seems like I'm getting good at signing these guest books lately, and that isn't really a good thing. As we get older, it is natural that our parents pass away, and it never gets easier. I never knew Priscilla as well as Lisa or Jeff did, but knowing Mary, Jane and John, I feel like I knew a part of her.

You'll always miss her. Its been almost 10 years since our mom passed away, and I still want to pick up a phone and call her. Comfort each other, lean on the Lord for peace and you will be fine. All the Doxsees love your family!!

I was saddened to hear of your loss. Though inevitable, it is never easy to part with those we love. Try to take some comfort in knowing that a little part of her lives on in each of you.

John, Mary and Jane- Our family has been blessed to know your Mom, and we share your heartache like family, as you did with us. I loved her smile and the glint in her eyes that you all have, and the humor. The pain has gone at last- God bless her and you kids. Think of her as she was when she was younger and in good health, raising you wild Symon's! We'll all miss her.

John, Mary & Jane- Y'all know how much I loved Pris, she was a great person & tried her damndest to civilize John & I! She will be greatly missed, although I can assure you she IS in a much better place, and is now in peace. My Mom & Dad, and Greg, are greeting her with open arms! I can still hear her- "John, Jeff, which one of y'all tracked in this mud, get the vacuum, RIGHT NOW!" Love Y'all, please let me know if you need ANYTHING!

My heartfelt prayers go out to the family and friends of Mrs. Williams. I was fortunate to meet her recently, and found her to be a kind, thoughtful and gracious lady...even in illness.

Priscilla was the true meaning of a classy southern lady! She will be missed, but know that she is well taken care of now, and out of pain and suffering. Mom and dad Doxsee are showing her around and making her comfortable! Mary, John and Jane ya'll should pat yourselves on the back for taking such great care of her, in her time of need! Love you all!

I am so very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. When I think of your mom I think of her as one of the moms in the neighborhood who helped raise me and as a friend in later years when I worked in Quincy. She was a very beautiful lady. I pray that you hang on to all the good memories, keep them close to your heart and may they comfort you. My love and prayers are with you.
