  3. In Loving Memory of Aunt Billie: We had a wonderful aunt, One who never really grew old; Her smile was made of sunshine, And her heart was solid gold; Her eyes were as bright as shining stars, And in her cheeks fair roses you see. We had a wonderful aunt, And that’s the way it will always be. But take heed, because She’s still keeping an eye on all of us, So, let’s make sure She will like what she sees. Rest In Peace Love, William & Ramona Gresham

You are gone but will never be forgotten. Rest in peace. Carol Chapman Mack

  7. My dear sweet friend & neighbor Billie Victoria Wells , known to me as “Vickie “. You came into my life as an aquaintance and we just clicked from the start and became really good friends. You had a sharp wit and a good sense of humor, and a caring spirit. We visited often as neighbors ,and discussed life events,children, and cooking & recipes. We had a shared interest browsing the cookbooks at the half price bookstore, just for fun.You amazed me how much you loved cooking for your kids in spite of your own situation. I told you often you were a very strong woman and admired your courage . I teased you that you should be a model ,because you dressed so nicely. One day we were both bored and just needed to get away. On that beautiful spring day we sat on a bench by the San Marcos river and just took in the fresh air and natural beauty around us as we watched people & dogs play in the river. It was peaceful. Another time we went to Wimberly and did the same . We enjoyed our scenic drive and visited a couple of shops too. Took a couple of pictures. You were my grocery shopping buddy , and sometimes clothes shopping buddy. We just made it fun. When visiting often times you welcomed my little dog “Chloe” and she looked forward to going to “Miss Vickie’s ” house. You spoke often and lovingly of your children and grandchildren , and shared with me some of their childhood and service pictures , and their accomplishments. You were so proud of each of them. I miss you very much my sweet friend , but know you are in God’s hands.Until we meet again someday , love you and rest in peace.

  8. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May our Lord bless and comfort you all during this time of grief. –Karma Esqueda

  9. Heartfelt sadness for your loss of your dear love one.May she rest in the peace of our dear lord and SAVIOR JESUS christ. Peace be with this loving family

  10. We started out as sisters-in-law and quickly became friends. Life happened and we found ourselves living countries apart. Yet, when we came back to Texas it was as if we had never separated. God always meant for us to be just that–friends to the end. I will miss you so much, but I know where to find you: in Heaven awaiting my return home. RIP, Billie Victoria, my friend always.

  11. To the families of Billie Wills , we send our condolences in our prayers and thoughts to the families. Peace be with her and peace be with the family.R.I.P. We didn’t know Billie that well, but what we do know of her that was she was a sweet and loving lady. LeRoy & Karon Dinges

  12. Billie affectionately known as “Vicki” or “Aunt Vicki” bought joy and light in the lives of the Ellis El family. Many moons ago as a child I remember when Uncle Kenny was transferring through the military as our family had the pleasure of hosting Uncle Kenny, Aunt Vicki, Vince, Mike, Curt and Lisa. While the stay in New Jersey was a short one, I enjoyed the blended family of sharing rooms, watching TV, her cooking and protecting me as a child from the wrath of my mom (LOL). Aunt Vicky’s homemade dinners, talks, and heart filled conversations shared will forever be remembered. She bought such an infectious spirit and laughter in my life and to those who knew her. Her honest nurturing soul and warm smile filled the room with her presence. My Aunt Vicki will be sorely missed but the memories will forever live in my heart. My condolences go out to my cousins Vince, Mike, Curt and Lisa and their families. May your days always remind you of the lives Aunt Vicki touched and the unconditional love she gave. May God Bless You All during this time.

  13. Mama Vicki, You’re no longer by our side but forever treasured in our hearts. I will miss your spunky spirit and informative cooking instructions. You know I believed in cooking shortcuts but you advised that shortcuts are not always the best way in cooking and in life. Advice received and cherished. You will be missed and Loved.
