I loved Billie so much!!! We had many great conversations over the years. I was her grocery clerk at Vallergas for years. She always brightened my day with her witty, honest, sense if humor and thoughts. Billie's candor, her views on life, and personal, heartfelt, opinions and advice will be with me always. I will truly miss her mischievous smile and twinkly eyes
