Thank you for visiting the Williams Funeral Directors website. We are celebrating our 132nd year serving Garland and the surrounding communities. As funeral directors, our calling imposes upon us special responsibilities to those we serve. An important obligation is to provide information so that everyone can make informed decisions about funeral and cremation services. Therefore,we are proud to offer this website as an additional tool to assist our families with items such as general funeral information, service and merchandise selections and options as well as directions to our facilities that out of town guests can access. We are also happy to post obituaries for family and friends to access and offer condolences or reflect on a life lived. You will also find useful information on pre-planning services, a resource for aiding in grief support and links to websites that we hope our community will find helpful. We are always looking for ways to better serve our families and we hope that this website will serve as an additional tool. Please feel free to call us at any time if you need immediate assistance or if you have any questions that we can help with personally.
The Williams Family
Our Family Serving Yours since 1885
The summer passes and autumn arrives. The witch trials have caused unrest in neighboring towns, and Danforth grows nervous. Abigail has run away, taking all of Parris’s money with her. Hale, who has lost faith in the court, begs the accused witches to confess falsely in order to save their lives, but they refuse. Danforth, however, has an idea: he asks Elizabeth to talk John into confessing, and she agrees. Conflicted, but desiring to live, John agrees to confess, and the officers of the court rejoice. But he refuses to incriminate anyone else, and when the court insists that the confession must be made public, Proctor grows angry, tears it up, and retracts his admission of guilt. Despite Hale’s desperate pleas, Proctor goes to the gallows with the others, and the witch trials reach their awful conclusion.
