  3. This is a personal message for Willie. My Aunt Mackie was a huge fan when Willie first started out in Hobbs New Mexico. I was just wanting to share a picture of my Mom and Aunt Mackie for Willie. Not sure how to do that. It’s a black and white and both were red heads. Just wondering if you remember them. Please let me know how to send it to you.

    Happy Birthday Willie
