Trooper Williams, I was transferred from Pamlico County and You took my place, your untimely death should have been me! I officially attended your funeral and I was filled with guilt and today June 22, 2023, I still believe that you died in my place! I saluted you then and I'm saluting you now! If I could have traded places with you I would have done so! To Trooper Williams Family I'm so very sorry for your loss!
