Although I usually only saw Peggy and Billie about once a year, our times together were always filled with good times and much laughter. However, Billie suffered many years and it seems that her tim on this Earth was to end.

I do miss her and the good times we had and all that good food she and Peggy cooked. Thanks for the memories, dear Cousins.

My thoughts and wishes for good memories to Harriet, Peggy, Jan, Kendall, and Janna. I love you all.
