Jack, Kathleen, and the rest of your family: I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Billie. I just read it today in my DEMOCRAT that had been laying around and had not been read. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.

Janie,Jack,Jeff,Julie and families,
Whenever I think of your mother, I think of her baked beans in her beanpot. They were the best I have ever had. Also all of the after the dance breakfasts your mother would fix. I have a lot of good memories of her and your father. The best polka dancers ever.
Thinking of you. Becky

Just saying her name makes me smile. I loved her sense of humor and laugh. Watching her look over the top of her glasses to give "The Look"...priceless.!! I know there are pretenders out there trying to replicate her potato salad...nobody will ever make it exactly the same. Over the years, I've eaten my weight, several times, in Billie's Potato Salad. Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and sending hugs. Love, Lynn
