What a great example of living life with zest dear "Aunt Billie" showed to all of us. I only remember good times in

Dear Bonnie Claire & Helen Hitt, We were so sorry to learn of Billie's passing ... and really sorry that we had no clue
she had been just a few miles away, as we have lived in Boyle since 1994. Such wonderful memories we cherish of
your parents... they took such good care of us young, green teachers ... through school and Webb-Sumner Methodist
Much love to you both! Coach & Mrs. Cash
