“We can’t thank you enough for your prayers, support, and unending love,” the post said. “You have walked with us through this very difficult journey and we felt you there the entire way. We love you so much and we thank you for the support. At this time the family has requested that you respect their time together and allow them to receive some much needed rest. Please hold off on reaching out with texts and phone calls for a few days.”
Casting Crowns first told fans of Williams’ accident on June 27, when they wrote, “Our friend & former drummer, Andy Williams, was in a motorcycle accident this morning and really need your prayers!”
On Friday, the group posted a video of Williams drumming as a tribute to their late bandmate.
“We love you Andy,” they wrote. “We miss you already!”
A GoFundMe to support the needs of Williams’ family has been created, with the goal of raising $250,000. The page provided updates throughout his stay at the hospital, where he had been on a ventilator.
Williams is survived by his wife and children.
