    Billie passed Nov 29th, suddenly, quickly. I am sorry I have not been able to notify more people personally. Billie was loved by so very many people, and I know she returned that love. Her life was woven with threads of devotion and kindness. Although her life took her into many different communities and projects, we talked often throughout the years, and more especially of late, particularly about the beloved wimmin's community. You were in her thoughts, more than you know.
    Thank you for your kind words.
