RIP Billie

Bruce, Paul -
I am so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful woman and I always enjoyed visiting with her. She was very proud of her family.

She always had a big hug for all us 'kids'! I keep the family in my prayers.

I will miss you sweet lady. Vickie Whigham

I will miss you my sweet Billie. I met Billie at Greenfields where my mom lives. Billie and I had an instant connection. She called me her daughter and I always told everyone she was my second momma. I love you and will see you again some day sweet lady. Vickie Whigham
