At the end of what has been one of the most emotional weeks in team history, Denver Broncos players, coaches and even Owner Pat Bowlen paid there last respects to D-Wil in front of thousands at Great Commission Baptist Church in Fort Worth Texas. Several members of the team spoke at the service, and below are some of the memorable quotes from a day that won't be soon forgotten --
One Bronco absent from the cermony was Javon Walker who decided to stay behind. Walker was with Williams when he was killed and according to Shanny is having a hard time dealing with what happened.
Javon is struggling," coach Mike Shanahan said after the service. "He's going through some very heavy grief right now and I talked to Champ (Bailey) about him. He's been with him for the last couple of days. He's going through a tough time. But I'm sure with everybody's support, he'll make it through it all right."
The Broncos returned to Denver right after the ceremony. Though none of us will ever forget D-Wil, it is my hope we might be able to start moving forward. Perhaps Mr. Bowlen said it best, "I told Rosalind Williams the best way to honor her son was to go out and win Super Bowl XLII."
