Monty Williams

Ingrid Williams, wife of Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams, passed away last Tuesday at age 44. She was killed in a car accident when a driver crossed over the center lane and collided with her vehicle. The other driver was also killed.

She leaves behind five children, ranging in ages from five to 17.

Five young children losing their mother is among the worst family tragedies that can possibly happen, up there on the scale with other atrocities that don’t require listing.

But Williams, speaking at his wife’s funeral on Thursday, handled the situation dealt to him with an impossible grace. Watch this:

“I didn’t lose my wife. When you lose something, you can’t find it. I know exactly where my wife is.”

Share this with your players, your staff and your family. You won’t regret it.
