  • williams For Mabel, with Love

    When Dennis Williams’ phone rang in Clear Creek in May, it was a call he hadn’t expected.
    The caller, Lisa Myhrens, told him that she’d been walking with her daughter at the lake, and they’d found a yellow balloon with his phone number on the shore.
    Williams was surprised. The balloons had been released on May 3 at Ewing Creek Church in Clear Creek at a memorial celebration honoring his late wife, Mabel Ann Williams.
    Mabel, 61, had passed away at the Williams home on March 28, following a battle with breast cancer.
