Agnes was a wonderful nurse worked with her many years at the
VA Medical Center. Stopped by and talked to her many times at Bella Vista Fabric. We were born the same month and same year and she always kidded me about being younger than me even though she was only a few days younger. I sure will miss her.

I will pray for her children as she prayed for me. i will remember fondly the few times that i met her as an adult. i will forever hear her voice when i think of her and never forget her positive can-do mindset.

Aggie had a warmth and a joy that was just infectious. She had the ability to make everyone feel like family. This little lady had a larger than life love for her Lord, her family and anyone who had the privilege to know her.

We are heartbroken! We had hoped to see each other again to share our memories of time past. We had many wonderful times as neighbors and visited in Tennessee and Charleston. We played cards together ( penny ante poker) . Agnes taught me to sew and cook. We took art classes with her Mom and us from Claude Sites in Claymont DE in the 60’s. I recently sent her one of my landscapes which she was so happy to get. She had a great sense of humor and had a pure soul. She and Tom were our son Jamie’s godparents. We pray for peace and comfort for Bob, Cathy, Lisa and her family and friends who mourn with us. May she Rest In Peace.

Bob, Cathy and Lisa, please know that our hearts are broken for you during this difficult time. We always will love your Mom and Dad and cherish the memories from years ago. I had always hoped to see your Mom again but will always remember the sound of her voice and laugh as it brings a smile to my face.
