"I have no words. On Friday morning I talked the family into taking this picture and had no idea it would be our last together with my precious little sister Katie," Williams wrote on Instagram.

The family was all smiles in the sweet photo. Katie's son smiled next to her as she held her daughter's hand. Her dad stood to her left.
