Billie was the sweetest most giving wife, mother and grandmother.  She showered her unbounded love upon her family, friends and strangers.  She knew the names of caretakers and their families too.   She developed deep friendships in her 23 years in Florida near Okeechobee.  Billie kept all her family and friends in her heart.  To know her was to love her and she will be greatly missed.
