I will miss Mrs. Billye! I would substitute teach for her Sunday School class for several years and I so enjoyed getting to know her. She had an infectious humor and was always so willing to help lead our discussions. I grew to love Ms. Billye years ago and will always be thankful that I was blessed to know her.

Aunt Billye Ann was a real character !! She loved river cruises on the Waccamaw River on Large Marge, hot dog suppers on her back porch at Long Bay Estates, steak night, having her hair done, hand churned ice cream, going to McDonalds for breakfast biscuits, and going to her church...but most of all she loved her family. We will all miss this vibrant ball of fire in our lives. Much love to all the family, Donna Raye Skeen and Daryl Faulkenberry
