Relation: Daughter What type of relationship you had with our father (i.e. close, distant, adversarial, was only around for a short time?) The relationship between Dr. Valerie Hill-Jackson and Willie Hill can be described as admirably strong. Dr. Hill-Jackson had the full benefit and luxury of knowing her father throughout childhood and as a young woman when he passed away. While the family watched their father grapple with making ends meet, this often came with tension within the family. But it is worthy to note that such experiences are normal in every American family.

The greatest pain caused to the Dr. Hill-Jackson was watching her father wrestle with his cigarette addiction. To know Willie (Dad) was to imagine him with a cigarette dangling from his lips. Dr. Hill-Jackson mourns, “there was no sunlight between Daddy and his Salem cigarettes.”
