To the Billman families,
I am very sorry for your
loss. Keep the good memories close as you get through the days to come.
Denise (Wimer )Evans
To the Billman Family --
As we gathered with you on Thanksgiving, just after
Beulah's death, I couldn't help but to think of the living legacy she had left here on earth as she ascended into heaven.
Yes, there were tears of grief, but also tears of joy in knowing that it was only her life here on earth that was over.
And you, her family, share that assurance partly because of Beulah's daily testimony. The legacy that she has left is
not one of dollars but one of hope, hope that we will all be reunited later at the feet of Our Savior.How appropriate that
her death came on Thanksgiving, a day that marks not only a special day of thanks but also the beginning of the Christmas
season when we celebrate the birth of that Savior.
Our prayers are with you all as you meet the many demands of the
next few days and weeks. May you find strength in each other and in Christ. God bless!
Bill and Gerry Myers

Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her. Fifty-eight years of marriage is quite an accomplishment. My mom said she could never
remember Beulah ever complaining. I remember that she was very proud of her children and grandchildren. Our hearts grieve
with you but we do not grieve like those who have no hope. Praying for you.
John & Carol Mellott & family
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
during this time. I hope that you can find peace in knowing that the memories will always keep her with you. God
