My dear Charlotte, Been decades since I saw Billisue. But have fond memories of us as kids and teenagers. I remember stepping into your home and loving that great dog Inky. And, why did we call Bob "Yogi"? And how many pizzas did we eat? When we moved my Mom to Texas, I sorta lost connections with Covington. But my memories of Billisue and you and Yogi remain in my heart. I share in your grief. Blessings, Gail
