    Jaimee - My heart goes out to you, Gavin and Dean on this day. I am so thankful I'm so many ways for having Billieann in my life. She was not only one of the best bosses I ever had but she was so kind and caring and we all were able to develop close friendships with her which was more than what you expect from your co-workers and bosses! She made work into another family! I am also grateful for her for bringing you into my life as well as Christina. I can remember you guys coming to visit me at work and at home too when Christina's oldest daughter was just a baby! If it wasn't for your mom, I would have never had you two loves in my life as well! Just know how special your mom was to so many people and we will always be family to you and your family because of the love that she created in all of us!!❤️
