    Tony and family: Please know that our hearts reach out to you for the loss of your wife (and Mother to your children). We remember very well our daughter fighting us about going into surgery at the Old Wendell Zebulon Hospiital and in came Billie Faye. She only said a few words to the child; off to the operating room they both went. She was a special lady and I am sure she will always missed..

    Billie Faye was one of the first people I got to know when Steve and I moved here to be pastor of her church. Steve was in a bad wreck not long after we arrived. Billie Faye was the one to call me, pick me up and take me to the hospital. She was truly a beautiful woman.
