My deepest sympathy and prayers to all the family. Missy was a wonderful woman. We had so much fun together and I will miss her so much. I am blessed that she was my dear friend. Somebody once told me that grief is the price you pay for loving somebody. I gladly pay that price because I had the privilege to love her and be loved by her in return

The entire Bice Family was so kind. I worked for Billy and Missy at the pharmacy while I was in high school. They treated me like family. I will never forget them. God Bless the family during this time.
