    Billie was such a thoughtful & caring neighbor lady to me here in Latham before they moved. I so enjoyed visiting with her! She enjoyed her antiques & flowers. I still cherish the antique flower cart she left me that wouldn’t fit in the truck when they moved away. Rest in peace dear sweet lady! Hugs & prayers Marvin & family

    Sending love and prayers to Billie’s family. Marvin, Mike and Crystal, I will keep you in prayer these next few days especially. Loss is very hard, but I know, as do you, that God has her in His care. An old song says “Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on His gentle breast, There by His love or’ taken, sweetly my soul shall rest.” She is resting now. Lovingly,
