Billie taught our boys at daycare. What a sweet lady! Praying for all her family.
Denice Burnside Webb , April 5, 2016 My heartfelt condolences to William & Shannon & the rest of the family and friends of this sweet,sweet lady. I first knew her, her husband & William my last couple of years of highschool & beginning of college. But for several years after, she & I would run into each other quite often (which was always a happy occurrence to us both.)Sadly, the last time I ran into Ms. Billie, was at least 7 or 8 years ago in Plano--but anytime I've seen her through the years, she treated me like no time had past & she always hugged me & said she was never going to let me go! Those are very sweet memories to me about her. I know she loved & adored her son, William & loved all of her family & friends very much. I know you all will greatly miss her. Sincerely, Tiffany P.S. William & family, I just want you to also know, I was so sorry to hear that you had lost your father too. You all will continue to be in my thoughts & prayers during this very difficult time.
Tiffany, April 4, 2016 We are blessed when we have one more chance to have an opportunity to share our love, feelings, hurts and successes with someone we love. I know in my heart that God was helping Billie hold on until I could get to Texas. She did not suffer and went peacefully in her sleep. I did get to spend 8 hours with her to talk, think and just be in her presence . I was able to share some of the time with my brother William. I believe that this brought some peace to each of us.. She has been reunited with my dad, her parents, grand parents and great grand parents , plus her 2 brothers. I pray God has wrapped her in his loving arms and showing her the ropes and of life in heaven. Love you all.
Dorothy (sissy) Boyette Kennedy, April 3, 2016 Billie you were always loving and big hearted. I will always hold dear to my heart the nights we would be up late to take in our dose of Sally Jesse Rachel. May you rest in peace. Kevin and Elysia Smith , April 3, 2016
