Rest In Peace: Anne Williams Loses Her Battle With Cancer

18 Apr

image-4-anne-williams-hillsborough-campaigner-and-mother-who-lost-her-son-kevin-has-died-932182627I was saddened to hear this morning that Anne Williams died today at age 60. Anne, who lost her 15 year old son Kevin at Hillsborough, has been a tireless campaigner for justice for the 96 victims. She made her last public appearance on Monday, defying all her doctors’ expectations, at the Anfield memorial service marking the 24th anniversary of the tragedy. She was a brave, amazing woman and mother who never gave up on her quest for the truth. She was diagnosed with cancer in October, just weeks after the independent panel report was released. I’m so glad she got to see that day. Her perseverance and unyielding fierceness when faced with opposition from so many corners is an inspiration. Well and hard fought, Anne, now you can go to your rest knowing that others will continue the crusade for justice. Thank you for never giving up.
