  1. I met Billie when she moved to Braham in 2008. She would visit my greenhouse, Aloha Gardens, often and we would talk of her love of gardening. One day she purchased a motor cycle and on one of her first trips, she visited me and nearly went through my greenhouse, as she wasn’t used to gravel. She took off her helmet and looked at me and said, “ya know, I should maybe have bought a smaller bike.” We laughed and laughed. She was a beautiful person, both inside and out. Her light will always shine. Aloha Billie until we meet again.
