I know that this truly great man, his family and his loved ones, are mourning the loss of this great lady. He has always talked, lovingly, and with great humor, about their relationship.

The world needs to take note of such people and seek to emulate the best of what they brought our world.

Please keep them in your prayers.

Oh, I’m so sorry to hear this! I love Walter Williams’ articles, and it sounded like he had a very happy marriage.

That’s just horrible. God bless her and keep her. He is one of the sanest and wisest pundits in America, and I’m sure she had a lot to do with that.

OH NO!

Dr. Williams is my all-time favorite Rush guest host, and this just breaks my heart. I used to love listening to him joke about Connie, and once had to pull over while listening in the car I was laughing so hard. The gyst of his one joke was, "She ain't getting none of the Walter with her attitude..."

I will keep him in my prayers. They had an inspirational and wonderful marriage.

I'm at a loss for words. Suffice it to say I considered Professor Williams a great American.

May G-d bless you, Dr. Williams, and comfort you at this time as He comforts all mourners. You could always hear the devoted love as you joked about your wife. She must have been a very special woman. I am so very sorry for your loss.

This is so sad. Williams had such great affection for his “Mrs. Williams”. The way he joked about her was precious.

I’d always laugh when Dr. Williams would talk about how his wife could only leave the house after she had completed all the chores on the list he had for her. I’m sure that list only existed in his dreams.

A man of his intellect is as rare as a marriage that lasts as long as theirs did.

God Bless him.

Prayers up for Connie, Walter, and family.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

You know they had a sweet marriage when he talked about how he bought her a little shovel for Xmas so she wouldn't strain herself shoveling the snow out of the driveway.

Poor guy. Sad.

Oh my goodness, what horrible news! She was a saint for putting up with kitchen utensils as Christmas gifts all those years. Prayers for her, Dr. Williams, and their family.

Loss is never easy and the more one has loved the more it hurts. I hope Dr. Williams finds peace in his tears and that those tears wash away the pain in his heart.

Remember the one where he bought her ice crampons so she wouldn’t slip and fall while scraping the ice off the windows of his car?

The death is a loss for us all. Walter E Williams is truly a great American who shares his life and wife with us on a very nonosense down to earth manner.

Dr. Williams is also my very favorite Rush guest host. His wife must have had a GREAT sense of humor, because he’d tell jokes about her which would cause women callers to chastise him. (Ex: He said he bought golf shoes for his wife so she wouldn’t slip on the ice while washing his car in the winter. LOL)

A long and happy marriage is a rare thing. Blessings upon him and his family during this very sad time.
