2 Corinthians 5:8 "We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord" ....

Ms. Erika Nicole Williams, 38, was born in Iredell County on June 16, 1981, and was the daughter of Craig Murdock and Sharon Yvonne Williams Murdock. She departed this life on Thursday, August 8, 2019, at her home following an extended illness.
She was a graduate of Statesville High School and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. While in High School, she served with the JROTC for four years. Prior to her disability, she was employed by Lake Norman Security as an Alarm Systems Monitor.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Mary Murdock Lazenby, Ferg Monroe Murdock and her grandfather, John Lazenby.
She leaves to cherish the memory of her life, in addition to her parents, her father, Craig Murdock of Statesville; her mother, Sharon Yvonne Williams Murdock of Statesville; her daughter, Kaylah Williams of the home; her son, Gabriel Wilkes of the home; her goddaughter, Davion Mathis; two brothers, Maurice (Tonia) Williams of Mooresville and Craig M. (Rosalyn) Murdock of Newport News, Va.; one sister, Tamara Nika Summers of Statesville; aunts, Barbara Knox, Gay Nell Murdock, Gilda Murdock, Cynthia Williams and Nancy Williams, all of Statesville; uncles, James Peewee Fraley, Russell Fraley, Artis Murdock, Larry (Ann) Murdock and Cliffton (Tara) Murdock, all of Statesville; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, Christian Outreach Church Family, and dear friends.
It seems so unreal that you are gone
When just the other day
You walked and talked and laughed with us
Then suddenly slipped away
Your peaceful smile, your joyful laugh
How sweet, the memory still
Your parting left an aching void
Only God’s love can fill.
Lovingly submitted,
The Family

I am so sorry for your loss. I know so many Murdocks that was from the Woodleaf and Cleveland area that moved away. May the God of all Comfort soothe your hearts and ease your pain as you go through this grievous time ( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 ). May He be your strength and your shield as you move forward through the tears. My prayers are with you.
