It is with the permission of the Williams Family that I have set up this account.

Jim Williams aka "Voice of the Dukes" of Cumberland County College.

As many people can attest too, we have lost a beautiful man, with the most loving, kind soul. Jim cared so much for everyone, especially his Mom and brothers and at this time, we must do what we can to keep helping them. We are asking that you help ease the horrible financial burden on his family and help pay for his funeral expenses and any other expenses his Mom deems necessary.

JWill, as I and so many others liked to call him, was the perfect son, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, and friend! He made us laugh, cry, and cheer. He spoiled our children and our grandchildren. He will be deeply missed today, tomorrow, and always.

Thank you for any support that you can give.

Marietta Clendaniel
Rosemary Stanley (Jim's Aunt)


********************************************************
I, Marietta Clendaniel (close family friend and adopted Aunt of JWill), with the permission of Cecilia Williams (Jim William's Mom), will be withdrawing the funds and delivering a certified check directly to Cecilia by the end of next week, March 4, 2017. Any funds collected after that date will also be delivered to her within 3 days of the funds being delivered to me.

Again, thank you for all the support.

Good evening. I just spoke with Cecilia and she gave me information about Jim's service, which she said to pass on.

A memorial service will be conducted in the gymnasium of Cumberland County College on Saturday, March 25th from 6-9pm. It is the first available date but she wanted to have it there since Jim loved The Dukes and this will be the last gift she can give him. Food & beverages will be served there also. People who have offered to prepare food, bring drinks, or supply paper products can contact me so that I can keep a list of what we have and keep track of what we will need.

She is very overwhelmed and thankful for all the love that everyone is showing Jim. Everyone has given her so much support and she can't thank you all enough.

I will be posting updates on the planning and reminders as the date gets closer. Thank you all so much <3

Please feel free to copy and share this information.

I spent some time with Cecilia, Jim's mom, today. I brought her the first check from all of your donations and because she's not internet savvy, I also brought along a printout of all the messages you have left. It was very overwhelming for her and it is easy to tell where Jim got his kindness and compassion from. She shared pictures of Jim from when he was a baby, to a pre-schooler who liked to do kungfu moves, from prom, from graduation, and photos of him with his family. Our Jim always had that beautiful smile and those cheeks we all wanted to squeeze. She showed me his room where he would sit and do his video blogs. As expected, sports memorabilia were on the desk and wall. I looked at his desk and saw his headphones and his mic and could almost hear his voice. Oh, how I'll miss that voice. We'll all miss it.

She is still planning a service for Jim and waiting for calls from someone at Cumberland County College because she would like them to be involved with the memorial service since it was where Jim loved being most - calling those games. As soon as everything is finalized, we will let you all know.

Cecilia expressed her deepest gratitude to everyone who has reached out to her, who donated, who shared the fundraiser, and those who spoke such beautiful, kind words about Jimmy Riley (as she liked to call him). It's a very hard time for her right now, but your support means so much to her. Thank you.

There must have been one really big game in Heaven and God sure did choose the greatest voice possible to call it! I love you, JWill. You'll forever be my brother, my kids Uncle JWill, & my favorite radio voice. I thank God for the time that I was blessed with you. Rest easy, my friend.
