We have memories of square dancing with the Bechers. What nice people!
One of the last times we visited Grandpa Becher at home, he played a joke on Kylie. It was the hen, rooster, pullet trick. I have a great picture that captures a special moment even if it was a trick. We will all miss Grandpa and Great Grandpa Becher; he was a very special man!
