Dick, Keith and all the girls, I am so sorry to hear you have lost Billie. She was such a precious jewel. The last time I saw her she could not say enough about her wonderful children and grandchildren. She showed me every picture in her wallet. She was so proud of each and every one of you. It was very plain to me how much she loved Dick and her precious little family. Her face lit up just talking about all of you. The thing I will always remember is from the time I was a little girl Billie was a gentle, kind soul. She had a warm, sweet spirit that was guided by love. Take care of each other and love one another with all your hearts. I will whisper prayers and ask God to hold all of you in the palm of his hand and give you the strength and understanding to ease the pain of your loss. Again, I am so sorry for your loss and sadness. With Love, Sherry
