Eleanor Slide Show Added

The Remembering Eleanor Side Show is finished.  I would like to include pictures from the last ten years of her life. If you have photos that you would like to share, please contact me, Rick. If you notice a photo without a date, and you happen to know the year the photo was taken please let me know so I can update the phote  With that being said I would like to create a slide slide for Veron Rikli, Alice Rikli and Gorden Williams. If you have photos and would like to share, please let me know. At least fifty photos would be ideal. 

Thanks!!

Welcome

On April 27th, 2002 the Leslie and Diana Williams site was launched. Over the years the site has changed and been updated to stay current with current internet standards.

 During the next two weeks, we will be updating our system again, to take advantage of the latest security features, to keep the website mobile friendly, and to allow display of videos and pictures that are of interest to the family. 

Keep checking back to see the latest changes, and thank you for your patience.
