R.I.P. Mrs. “Billie” Bailey… beloved wife of our good friend Jeff Bailey
Hello everyone. I have some bad news to share with you.
In case you have wondered why Jeff has not been posting on Imodeler recently over the past few days, this is why. Jeff is one of our “regulars”, and a very good friend of mine. He is always welcoming new members here with friendship. I call him my “Brother from another mother”, since we both served in the US Army at the same time, and we both also served in the same series of tanks, namely the M-60 A-1 and the M1A-1 series. We chewed on some of the same dirt…and have a lot of the same interests.
Jeff lost his wife of 33 years yesterday after she had a short battle with cancer. Cancer is a horrible disease. I pray that someday we can find a cure.
Today I spoke with him, and asked if it was OK to post this. He was thankful for the offer, as he has a lot on his plate at the moment. Jeff probably will be absent from here for a little while. Please understand the reasons why.
His presence will be missed, as will his dear wife Billie.
Please share a moment of silence in her memory.
