  1. At first glance I thought that was Willie Mays ’cause of the name.
    Fun fact: Willie Mays and his wife are close friends of my aunt and uncle. Well, just Willie and my aunt now, since his wife passed away years ago, and so did my uncle. I ran into a neighbor who I hadn’t seen since childhood and he recounted how totally freaked out he was the day he came over to our house and Willie Mays was there. That made me laugh. I forgot how much people loved him. He was just a “nice man” to me, lol !!
