Memories Timeline


  1. Colleen and Doug — I am sorry to hear about your mother's passing. She was a wonderful woman and I most remember her smile. Please know that you and your families are in my prayers.

  2. Dear Colleen, I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I see that the funeral service is today, so I'll call later this week. My thoughts are with you and all your family. Love, Frank

  3. I spent a many nights and evenings working with your mother in the emergency room. She was full of fun and always took it well when it was her turn to be the brunt of the joke. From the spiders that we would drop in her hair above her chair…to the snakes we'd put in her drawer….she was a HOOT. She knew how to dish it out as well. She got us all on more occasions than I can remember. I don't remember anyone else I wanted to work with more in the emergency room. She was here to entertain us all. What a legacy to come from her qualities! May she rest in peace but yet give those up there some of what she gave us here on earth. I loved this woman!

  4. I wish I could be with you today, but I'm there in spirit. My deepest sympathy to all Billie's family. With all my love, Joan

  5. Ms. Billie was one of my favorite people of all time. She always had something funny to say.. would always encourage me and put a smile on my face. My sincerest condolences to all of you.. She will be missed. Love, Alice and family

  6. On behalf of the Simmons' family we would like to express our deepest sympathy to the Houston family. Being from Moss Bluff we knew of her well. She was always a woman with many words and love for everyone she met. May God richly Bless and keep all of you in this special season and with your time of grief. Karen Fontenot

  7. To the Houston family, I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. may you find comfort and strength in the Lord. knowing that she is now free of pain and in the presence of her Lord. always keep her memories alive in your heart in these most difficult days ahead.
