Aunt Billie and family,  It has been awhile since I have seen most of you, but I remember Uncle Jay and Aunt Billie so well.  I remember the pest control office on Monte Vista and the house that over looked the railroad track.  Uncle Jay will be missed, but he is in heaven having a wonderful talk with the lord.  Love,   Becky (Westbrook) Baumert.  (Bill and Louiese's oldest daughter}  Love and hugs to you all from us here in Washington
