Boxing with Willie

BY IDA HANCOX My life and heart were torn apart three years ago when my son Willie was killed in West Oakland. Now I am raising his 6 year-old son. This blog entry is created out of my struggle to cope with Willie’s death. Now, I pray even harder than I used to for other families when someone gets killed. Their memories live here, in my blog, alongside mine as we struggle everyday with the holes left in our lives.
