Agnes was an amazing woman. She had a huge heart and always a kind smile. Agnes worked for us for 20 years and she was an excellent hardworking individual. She would come to work everyday no matter the weather storms never stopped her. She would walk in with her smile, perfect uniform, professional make up and hair everyday at 4:45 am . Early for daily shift of cutting the best lettuce for our sandwiches and salads. We have many great memories and so blessed for touching our lives... Our thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time .

I don't even know where to begin when writing about my grandma. She loved me more then words can express and she was always there for me. I feel so lucky that I had 30 years with such a wonderful grandmother. She gave me countless happy memories when I was a kid, and when I became an adult, I know that I was able to do the same for her. She shaped my life with her kindness and love, and she will always be a part of me. I love you Grandma, kiss hug!
