  1. When I think of Billie, I think of love, joy, appreciation, courage and heart. She was full of life, full of spirit…that and much more. I know she is living..just in another dimension. We lit a candle for her tonight, Life is short. Live like Billie.

  2. Billie was a very unique person and had a unique way of looking at life. I truly enjoyed listening to her stories and her beliefs. She was kind, generous and funny. I am sorry that I hadn’t seen her in a number of years.

    My sincere condolences to her her family and friends.
