How much we loved Billy and Nell! What great pioneers they were and did so much to create a town that we wanted to move to where we could work and raise our family. They both had great memories and had seen so many amazing things happen during their lives. They were always such a positive, fun-loving joyful couple who honored each other, their family, their church, their community and their love for Jesus. What a great heritage you have! With blessings and love, Sue and Brian Gordon
