"Unbelievable strength for Chad to stand (up there). I can't imagine getting up in front of there. I just can't." Gary and Terese Williams live about a mile from where Watson lost nearly everything. "I think today helped the community as well as them." The Williams' say the community needed closure as well, and needed to see and hear Chad to know he was doing okay. "He sounded great. He has a great faith in the Lord."
It is his great faith that makes coping possible and his love for spreading the word continual. "When tragedy strikes we can say the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away," said Watson.
Heart's & Halo's #WATSONSTRONG Benefit Beauty Pageant will be Saturday March 29th at 1 p.m. at the Merle Travis Center in Powderly, KY. For information or a #WATSONSTRONG t-shirt, call Melonie at 270-543-7515.
