    My dad, Roy Luke told me about this wonderful story. Is there a place on line to see Billie singing? This brought tears to my eyes.

    Mother, I was so proud of you. I have been all of my life. Your singing has inspired and influenced many people, including all of our family, for many years. I'm sure that God will continue to bless you and to give you other opportunities to glorify Him. Love, Jeff ("Corky" to our family and to many of my friends)
