I never had the opportunity to spend much time with my Aunt Agnes, but the memories I do have of her are of a kind and loving woman. I last saw her when I stopped by her house in May of 2012. We had a nice visit, she showed me her beautiful garden and we talked about family. What a blessing that she lived such a long life and was able to be such a wonderful example to so many.
Danny June: You have my sympathy and prayers during this time. Mothers are very special people as you both are very aware. May the good memories and good lessons she taught you and so many other blessings she provided to you be a source of encouragement and comfort in the days ahead!
Danny and Family We were so saddened to hear of Agnes passing. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched encouraged and blessed. We will always remember her sweet smile and warm personality. Praying God sends His comfort strength rest and peace to you in the coming days. Thinking of all of you with much love. God bless and keep you. Psalm 116:15
