For many years the Bendure and Billings families lives were almost simultaneous. We went to church together, played cards together, went out to eat together and help others repair and build houses. Raymond and Rick were older than me and my brother, Dudley Ray, so we looked up to them. Nothing hardly happened that the other family didn't know and showed up to help if needed. Linda, my prayers are with you and your family for peace and comfort. I know what it means to have half of your heart gone when your spouse passes to Heaven. Rest assured everyone has welcomed Raymond home and they are having the best time ever. We didn't lose them. We just can't see or hold them now. Soon, we will all live together in peace and joy. Blessings and love!! Daryl Billings.
