  1. Dearest Jere and family, so exceedingly sad to hear of Billie‘s passing, but I praise the Lord that she knew him and I know where she is right now. May you find comfort and peace with that knowledge, that’s what helped me the most when I lost Gary

    1. Mrs. Gilbert was my daughter’s favorite Lamar Elementary after school teacher. We later became neighbors and my daughter would ride her bicycle and walk our dog in their driveway. Mrs. Gilbert always waved and looked out for the neighborhood children. We will miss her beautiful smile.
