I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Billingsley as her dental hygienist and always looked forward to her appointments and our conversations. We could talk the majority of the appointment and I think that was fine with both of us. I was very sorry to hear of her passing. Please accept our deepest condolences.

Please accept my deepest condolences and prayers. Diane and I sure made some amazing memories when our girls played softball together. The old iron bridge near Woodson was a hoot! God Speed my friend.
