In Sickness And In Health

John Williams Jr.’s life changed irrevocably in 2014 when he was in a horrific crane accident while working at a VT Halter shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi.

Williams, an experienced crane operator, lost part of his skull, his vision and his independence. He suffered severe brain damage that left him with the mental capacity of a child.

Wanda, his wife of almost 20 years, now takes care of him. Their love remains strong, but they have lost the life and relationship they once knew.
