  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with Toots and the girls. Roger will always remember the trips to the Elks and Eagles as well as the fishing trips and hunting trips. We have so many memories of good times and are especially thankful to have had the month of December with Toots, Ken, Leo and Betty in AZ. How ironic was it that all the brothers and sisters were in Billings for their annual sausage making. We wish we could be there with you Toots and the family but it was so wonderful to have that time together in December. Love all of you. Roger and Barb

    Deepest Sympathy. I didnot know Kenneth, but did talk with him in November or December when he called about a phone call he had received from an oil lease company. His first words were Hi, I’m the other Kenneth Kostelecky. What a surprise! We had a nice little talk and found out that he and my husband, Kenneth G Kostelecky, are related. Was his father (Vincent) a brother to Joe Kostelecky the twin or was Joe his Uncle? Again, I am sorry for your loss. I would really have love to have gotton to know Ken better. Loretta Kostelecky, wife to the other Kenneth G Kostelecky. Billings, MT

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to toots and family for their loss. He will surely be missed. (your niece)John & Jolene Munoz

  4. Our thoughts and prayers to Aunt Toots and Cheryl and Pam and their families. We always enjoyed the times that they would come to the farm to visit us whether it was in Richardton or Plevna. Sorry we cannot attend the funeral and would have loved to come see everyone again. I am sure either Lorraine or Monica will be there to hopefully represent the Boespflug family. Love to all Rick & Betty Cline (Boespflug)
