I met Billie on Flag Day at Aster Place. American Legion Post 11 was doing a presentation. I sat beside her outside. She told me about her service with General Doolittle. It was an amazing story. We had something in common, we were both veterans. She showed me her room & all her pictures. I was so blessed to meet her & hear her story.

Terri, Ian and Clair, I’m so sorry for your loss. I work at MHRC as an LPN; Billie was one of my favorite residents! She was sweet and feisty. She loved and missed you all very much, especially Clair; she would wheel to the nurse’s station to call you every day. She collected the stuffed animals to give to Clair. My prayers go out to you all. Theresa Eddy, LPN

Billie was my mom's dearest and most loyal friend. Billie once drove all the way to East Texas from Lafayette to then drive Eva to Tucson, Arizona where she was to stay and receive care for a terminal illness. No truer friend... Oh to hear again the laughter those two gals could get going... My love to Terri, Clair and Ian.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
