    Was saddened to hear of the news of Billies passing.ln Junior and Senior High School we made so many good memories. I loved staying in Cornell and riding the bus. Went snowmobiling, mini bike riding to Jan’s house,talking,laughing, practiced putting on make up,dances ,went to football games,learned what was really important in life, and had our whole lives ahead of us. Loved to chat at craft shows or whenever our paths crossed. Rest in peace. Will think of you often and will smile. And will forever remember the twinkle in Billie’s eyes. So sorry for your loss. Billie touched my life forever. Faye( Pakarinen) Norby

    I was saddened to hear of Billie’s passing. She was a classmate of mine starting in Cornell Elementary where we became not only classmates but friends. We would not see each other often since our school days but when we did it was so great to remember those days in Cornell school and trying to catch up on classmates. Know that my thoughts and that of my mother are with you all as you go through this emotion time. May God Bless and make His peace and comfort be felt.
