Billie was a Mom, a sister, and most of all, a very good friend who guided me in my decision-making in the few years I have been in business. She has given me so much encouragement and I am truly grateful and appreciative of the friendship we had. I will miss you, dearest Billie Grace Ozaeta, May 5, 2021 She was a blessing to my life. When I was sad she would pick my spirit up, she knew how I felt coming through the door. She was an amazing friend, will always be close to my heart. Thank you Billie for everything you did for me!!
