      Willie Brown is expected to die very soon. He has been in a nursing home for a year this month. He took some sort of infection earlier this week, so Willie was in hospital until last night, when the physicians determined it best to return him to the nursing home under hospice classification. Vera is, as can be expected, having a very difficult time. Willie was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease about nine years ago, but he was in pretty good shape through the end of 1998.

      Willie was an IBM executive. He took retirement around 1985. His father was a Baptist minister. I enjoyed being around uncle Willie, and he always was so generous towards my grandmother.
