  1. She will be missed by so many people. She had a wonderful sense of humor, which I will miss. Rest In Peace, Billie. Say “Hello” to Leroy” for me.

  2. Billie will be missed by so many. She is now at peace with God and can once again be with Leroy and Bunny laughing and having fun. Prayers for her family as they find peace.

  3. Lisa, Bret and Family, lifting you all in prayer for comfort and peace. The service was beautiful and Billie and Leroy could not have had a better group of a loving daughter, son-n-law, grand-daughters & their spouses and great grand children to care for them and love on them these past five years. I can envision those beautiful smiles on both of their faces once again. A reunion together with all the loved ones there with them. May your family and friends and their love carry you through this time.
