Two weeks ago, I told you about Nancy’s daughter Becca, who was diagnosed with cancer this past April. Ten days later, this past Monday, Becca lost her battle.  I received the devastating news from Nancy and am passing on her email; I know her friends (especially in the dance community) will support her and her family, as we always do:


Our beautiful angel Rebecca has gone to heaven to ride horses on the clouds.  We will be gathering to remember and share stories of her life: 

Visitation:  Sunday, October 2, 2016, Noon – 7 pm
Williams-Kampp Funeral Home
430 E. Roosevelt Road
Wheaton, IL 60187
(630) 668-0016

Service:  Monday, October 3, 2016, 10 am
St. James the Apostle Catholic Church – Mass
480 South Park Blvd
Glen Ellyn, IL 60137

Many of you know our precious angel lived for animals big and small. One of her favorite places to visit is the DeYoung Family Zoo. We ask that you consider in-lieu of flowers send a gift to the zoo in her name. Their address is: N5406 County Road 577. Wallace, MI 49893, website


In other news, the deadline for the Dance With Janet Cruise has been moved to TOMORROW, OCTOBER 1st.  If you would like to join the party, please register TODAY; you have until November 19th to cancel with a full refund if you change your mind.  I have a few ladies looking for roommates.  Visit to book your cabin.

If you’d like to dance TONIGHT, I’ll see you at the Geneva American Legion!  Tomorrow we’ll return to Warrenville!
