Her family and friends were also crushed knowing that she will die soon. They gatherered by her bedside to show their love and support, the International Business Times wrote.
Amidst her ordeal, Billie and boyfriend VJ (Matthew Little) decided to continue with the wedding. They finally tie the knot after several failed attempts. After the wedding, she asked VJ for a favor. Minutes later, Nate (Kyle Pryor) was seen in panic after he found out that Billie is missing.
Billie’s final request to VJ was to take her to the beach to see the sunrise one last time. At the beach, Billie told her husband that it was her happiest place.
He also told him that wants her ashes to be scattered in the ocean. She died peacefully in VJ’s arms while watching the sunrise.
