Re: A Dear Friend
    I got a phone call today (Sunday [10/5/03]) from a daughter of 
Billie Lou Waldrep Golla ('51). Billie passed away on October 3rd 
in New Braunfels, TX. She had been ill most of the summer yet her 
passing was unexpected. Billie loved being a Bomber; she attended 
every reunion the class of 1951 held except for the 50th and her 
health wouldn't permit traveling. She was a great friend and will 
be missed by many.
