His Wife Of 60 Years Dies, Then He Looks In Her Checkbook And Sees A Note She Kept Hidden

Jimmy and Billie Breland got married in 1954. The happy couple from Mississippi enjoyed 60 blissful years of love and marriage. Their family grew and expanded from children to grandchildren.

Billie, a former public school teacher, was an avid note writer. She was known to leave messages and reminders to herself around her home in Cleveland, Mississippi.

Billie passed away on January 13, 2015 at the age of 83. Jimmy’s heart was broken in two.

Two days after Billie’s passing, Jimmy happened to notice a note tucked away in her checkbook. But this final handwritten note Billie left wasn’t for her… it was for him.

The second Jimmy plucked the note out of Billie’s checkbook, he couldn’t believe his eyes.

In 2015, Cliff Sims wrote a story about his dear grandparents for Yellowhammer News.

The story reveals an unexpected note his grandmother Billie, a.k.a “my Mimi” left behind.
