A TIME FOR SILENCE, We have lost a great patriot and human being.
On the show Thursday we will dedicate a moment of silence to this remarkable woman.
It was a quiet Friday morning, January 25, 2013, and Mike Williams’ thoughtful telephone call could not have surprised me more. His beautiful wife and my dear friend, Carole Jean Williams had just died. Though she had been fighting cancer since before the holidays, it happened very suddenly. C.J. and I had talked on the telephone just a few days earlier and she was feeling “pretty good,” she said. A few days before that, she told me she felt better than she’d felt since she was told she had cancer. So I was numbed by Mike’s call.
