  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve known Billy Ray and Jerrilea since before they were married. Even though I haven’t been in Hazen for several years I still think about friends there. Prayers Jerrilea for you and your family.

    Will miss visiting with Billy Ray. His mom and my mom were first cousins on the Holmes side. Billy Ray was my go-to person for family lineage questions. He was the person who could tell you how two people were related. I was in awe of his Center Point database. Billy Ray’s vast knowledge of those in the database is irreplaceable. His death leaves a huge void as family / cemetery historian but his legacy will live on for future generations.

    Lifting his family up in prayer.

      Ms Jerrilea Kee & family, I’m sad to hear of Mr Billy’s passing. I always enjoyed his company when I visited your home as a teenager and as an adult he always tried to make an effort to speak to me. I know this will be hard on you all. My prayers are with you all.

    Our family sincerely appreciates all the prayers, visits, calls, food, and love that’s been shown us since the passing of our dad.
