Mississippi Brain Injury Association of Mississippi

We lost a good one this year....

I remember getting the phone call from Vernon Perry, President of the Mississippi Chapter of the Retired NFL Players Association.   Willie was gone.

On that day, we lost a legend, a friend, and - how we feel at the Brain Injury Association of Mississippi - a family member.

Willie was an active supporter of the Brain Injury Association of Mississippi.  We looked forward to visiting with him at our annual "Celebrity Golf Classic". As Rob Jay said, "everybody wanted to play with him. Whichever group he was playing with would always win".  Willie's team won the 2015 "Celebrity Golf Classic".  

The 2016 "Celebrity Golf Classic" is being held in memory of Willie. We hope you can join us on Friday, September 30, 2016 at the Refuge in Flowood, MS as we continue an event Willie supported and participated.

In Loving Memory
