  1. Billie Jean, you gave our family so many memories. The one that sticks out in Larry’s mind the most was when you called Larry on his birthday on his cell phone and sang in your sexy voice “Happy birthday Mr. President” (like Marlyn Monroe), He will never forget it. He said “it wasn’t to long and I figured out it was Billie and then I couldn’t help feeling embarassed when I was standing in front of a bunch of the guys that work for me.” All the bar-B-Ques. at the house will never be the same. Our kids my Sirena, and your Jon, getting married, and even when things went south you kept on loving the family open arms.. just in the past few months things settling down. I know if you have a hand in it you will have them back together… time will tell. You have always said, or done, or given, from day one when we all met. Not a time did we ever feel unwelcome. God the things you used to say… No one could ever say you were funny, entertaining, exciting to be around.. yet you didn’t need much, or want much your life was about your kids The thing Scott (15) remembers was when you dug through Isabel’s toy box and and found a cow for his forth grade mission he needed. Sean,(17) remembers you offered him his first beer (of course he didn’t take it he was what… 12) you sure shocked the s–t out of him. If you had it… you gave it… the lady with a heart bigger then her self. God Bless! We will always miss you

  2. Words do not express the sadness we feel for your loss. I wish there was some deep and profound sentiment we could say to make you all feel better. You hold in your hearts many happy memories of Billie Jean and know that she was actually “living” her life to the fullest- for example her recent skydiving trip. There are many people who live life in the “someday I want to” mode and many never reach their “someday”. We know that there had to be more that she wanted to do in her life; but try to concentrate on all of the wonderful things she did do. Family and friends are the things that are important in life… and she had both. Hopefully the thoughts of her having enjoyed her time here will help you through this very difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Dave, Heather, Kellie & Cory Rogaczewski
