  1. We have such fun-loving memories thanks to Bill and Dot especially New Year Eve’s at Westborough Country Club. We are friends of Joanne & Bob’s and Joannes parents generously let us attend, it was always a fun nite, especially when Dot passed around her “herring” at midnight for prosperity!!!
    Our son, Eric, recalls teaching their great-grand kids how to swim at their lovely pool.
    They were ALWAYS FUN to BE WITH!!! and we know heaven is a happier place with both of them there.

  2. I was saddened to hear about the loss of Mr, Linek. I knew him through my late husband and through Bill and Terri and Chris. Sending prayers for strength and peace throughput this sorrowful time of adjustment.
