Billie left behind a letter of gratitude that states “I want to say thank you to every one who kept in touch, came by, and helped me. You have no idea how much I appreciated it. Dawn and family, Shawn and Angie & little Lenni, Austin, Dillon, Eli and also Levi. I couldn’t have done it without your help. Mandy and Allan, Gracie, Stran and Trig. Thank You for the help, the visits and the laughter. The laughter of children takes away so much pain. Your family are the people you can count on. Thank you so much. God Bless each and every one of you. I love you all.”
