“She never really traveled. She worked for a while at Leo’s Quality Foods. She stopped driving when she was in her 60s.

“Aunt Willie’s favorite type of music is gospel.  Her favorite type of food is mashed potatoes and oxtails. (She can only eat soft stuff.)  Her favorite game is dominoes.

“She is mostly in her wheelchair now because she had a stroke, so she only walks a little bit with her walker sometimes.

“Aunt Willie B. said her life is beautiful and she’s glad to be alive. My Aunt is still living till this day.

“My grandmother said that this year on December 11th Aunt Willie will be 106 years old and we will go to her house to have ice cream and cake to celebrate with her.  Maybe we’ll even play dominoes too!”
