1/3 UPDATE FROM COACH WILLIAMS' FAMILY
Dear Family, Friends, and Community:
We express our deepest gratitude for the support and prayers extended to Markeith. Today, we share the news that Markeith exhibited eye movement to the sound of his daughter's voicemails, including his son and best friend’s voice.
Though his condition remains critical, and he remains on a ventilator, he is displaying positive signs by making efforts to breathe independently. This development is encouraging and indicates his determination to overcome this challenging situation.
As previously expressed, our primary objective is to safely expedite Markeith's return home, surrounded by the support of our family, friends, and caring community. Your continued thoughts, prayers, and support are deeply appreciated during this difficult time.
