One of my fondest childhood memories was playing "dress up" with my Nannie's things (Daisy Poynor) and walking across the street to show Billie and have our picture taken with Glynn. Billie was like part of our family and a wonderful friend to my Nannie and Papaw (Daisy and Aubrey). She and Daisy loved to go shopping or workout in Ft.Worth. My grandparents were so fortunate to have such a lovely Christian neighbor and friend in Billie. We will miss her here but I'm sure she and Daisy are celebrating in heaven. May the peace of God be with the family
