    1. Our family is blessed with the love and memories of our beautiful friend Billie Jo. She cared for my mother (Louise Bowling) like she would have cared for her own mother. My heart is breaking but I know without a doubt she is with the Love of her life (Julian). Julie, Jeff, & Ricky y’all are in my prayers. Your mother was a true friend to me!
