My sympathy to the family. I met Agnes when Goshen Community Chorus went

John, Joe, Becky, Jerry, and families, You have been in my thoughts and prayers
the last few days. I have so many good memories of your mom. She was a very
intelligent and very talented woman. We had many good times together! My kids
remember trips to the farm and the dolls and farm toys.
