  1. I’ve known Billie Jane Calloway for many years & also her husband Jerry. My oldest brother was close to them for years even back in the 1960’s. They once rented a up stairs apartment from them that was located on Haywood Rd. In West Asheville. I know they loved the Lord & someday I shall see them again. My prayers are with their nieces, nephew left behind. God bring comfort and peace to each of you .
