Annie Ruth Williams

It has been a little more than a year since Fly's mother, Annie Ruth Williams, passed away in New York City. She was 91.
Fly will never forget her.
"She was a great person," Fly said August 5. "My mother was more popular than me, to tell the truth."
Annie Ruth Williams was known for her volunteer work and helping others in any way possible. Fly says she was the most giving person he ever knew.
"The way I volunteer today," Fly said, "that's the way my mother did it all her life."
Fly says her funeral and memorial service last August was like a party with more than 2,000 people attending on a blocked-off street.
"We had to get a truck club to block the exits of the street," Fly said. "There must have been 30 truc ks that blocked up the street, and the motorcade, forget it. It was at least 10 to 14 New York City blocks long. They didn't come for me. They came for her."
