There are truly no words, Aunt Billie was just the sweetest, cutest aunt ever and just adored her family and our Uncle Elvin. She always welcomed us with open arms and I'll always cherish the times we spent there for occasional holidays (Thanksgiving) before going to bed and making a turkey sandwich. Also will cherish the time Pat and I went and camped with them at Pokagon State Park. Will miss her incredible good cooking and her sweet smile. It gives me comfort that she is with Uncle Elvin and Dennis xoxoxoxoxo
