Tributes

During several of the years Billye worked at Butterfield Trails, I had an opportunity to provide part time employees for her in the dining area many times in my position as a Staffing Manager. It was a joy to work with her in that capacity. Praying for her precious family.

Kelly, Kelly, my deepest sympathy. I pray Gods peace, Gods total peace in knowing your mother is with the LORD. God has a great reward awaiting her for her beautiful, faithful work she has done in this life. I love you and will keep you in my prayers.
