This site serves as a guestbook for friends, family and coworkers who would like to share memories — and perhaps new ideas — about Billie Underwood. To contribute, just create a comment on an appropriate page.
Billie’s departure was sudden.
I’ll be adding a more sensible organization and much more content in coming weeks and months. Some of you know that I hosted a family website a couple years ago, and I’ll be restoring some of that content here, and some of that content on a family site elsewhere.
Suggestions are welcome. You can write me at knowlengr at gmail.com or Tweet to @knowlengr. If you would like me to scan photos and post them, I’m happy to do that. (I also recommend an Arizona-based commercial service who can convert large or small quantities of photos and other content to digital formats).
