Dear Jack, Bob, and Kaye,
Billie was loved by all that knew her. She was a wonderful person and always a lot fun, I always enjoyed her sense of humor. I never saw her without a smile. My deepest sympathy to the entire family. May God bless each of you and may you cherish the wonderful memories you shared with her.
Jack, Bob and family, Sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Prayers to you all. Jerry
Billie’s sense of humor was terrific and we always enjoyed DAR meetings! She never looked or acted her age… and THAT is a compliment. Enjoy Heaven, Billie!
