Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams shared incredibly powerful and selfless words on Thursday night while speaking at the memorial of his wife, Ingrid Williams, who died after a car accident on Feb. 9.
Three of the Williams’ children were injured in the accident, and the driver of the other car died at the scene, according to The Oklahoman.
“I want to close with this, and I think it’s the most important thing we need to understand. Everyone is praying for me and my family, which is right, but let us not forget that there were two people in this situation. And that family needs prayer as well, and we have no ill will towards that family. In my house, we have a sign that says, ‘As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.’
“We cannot serve the Lord if we don’t have a heart of forgiveness. That family didn’t wake up wanting to hurt my wife. Life is hard. It is very hard, and that was tough, but we hold no ill will toward the Donaldson family. And we, as a group, brothers united in unity, should be praying for that family because they grieve as well. So let’s not lose sight of what’s important.”
