4 condolences for “Billie Louise Whitson”

  1. Billie you will be missed!! I’m so sorry but happy you’re with your mom and dad! Your precious son, your gift to our family; Jaxon, will always be loved and adored love, Russ and Patty Huppmann

  2. My prayers and sympathy to Billie’s family members and friends. I will always remember her. She was a very special and talented young lady. I am sorry we have lost her, and I am sorry for her struggles. Now she is free. God bless her.

  3. My fondest memories of Billie were when she was younger and living on the farm. She would light up the room with her energy and talent. I can remember her jumping on the trampoline with her friends and paddling the paddle boat on the pond. The funniest memory is when her Uncle Jackie and her were on the paddle boat and a goose attacked them. Billie had to protect us from the mean goose. I remember her mom posting Billie’s school work and report cards on the refrigerator. I also can remember Billie’s excitement when her mom let her get a hamster. Then there were the lazy afternoon days sitting on the porch and chasing that darn turkey with a broom.

    One special memory that I will always cherish with Billie is when my daughter, Kaitlyn and I picked her up from BWI to attend her mom’s funeral. On that trip from the airport to Romney we laughed and cried. We shared so many fond memories on that drive that will never be forgotten. Billie was so appreciative that we were there to pick her up at the airport.

    Oh yes, can’t forget when her Uncle Jackie would yell out “Billie, Billie, Billie in his high pitched voice. If only we could go back in time. I wish everyone had the chance to know what a gifted child Billie was. She played the piano and violin like no other child I have ever known.

    RIP sweet Billy, your time on earth is now done. Spread your wings and fly high with your grandma, mom and dad!
