My condolences to the Larry family. Billie was a wonderful person as was Bennie. I met them years ago at the Bonanza restaurant in Fairmont. I was a manager at that time and used to take care of both of them. They became part of my family as well. Mrs. Larry will be missed. Like I said she was a wonderful person.

Johnnie, Linda and family I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Billie. I was just thinking of her the other day. I have so many memories of her kindness and how nice she was. I know it is a difficult time and it doesn't make it easier, but know she is in a beautiful place. Each time you see a star, a new flower blooming or feel the warmth of the sun remember she is near. As God gave us beautiful things in life, he also gave us Billie. Again I am sorry for your loss.
