“To Billie's Family.
I was truly sad to hear that your wonderful mother/grandmother passed away. I had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with Billie when she visited James, Amy and Heather in Virginia several years ago. She was an inspiration to us all. I hope your sadness will be short lived and that you will find comfort in your wonderful memories of Billie. Love to all”

“So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother, Janet. She was baptized, confirmed and married at the same church, Trinity Lutheran of Grant Township, Ida Grove, as I. I was baptized, confirmed and married there just before the tornado took the church away from us but we still have our memories. Her maiden name of Streck is very familiar but I am sure there are more Fred Streck's than the one that I used to know. She looks like a dear lady and I can see a resemblance to you, Janet! I know she will be missed, leaving a hole in the lives of the people she loved. It is for certain, however, we will, see her again when we reach our "real" home in Heaven. May God grant you HIS unconditional Peace.

“Our deepest sympathy to the family of Billie Andresen. She was a special lady and I'm sure will be missed greatly. I enjoyed playing bridge with her, a very 'sharp' player. She had a quick smile with a little chuckle, which I thought was neat. She is now at peace enjoying Heavenly Joy.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Joan and Leon Petersen”
