"This is so hard to do. To think Agnes isn?t going to be there any more. We had many times of talks and phone calls. Her stories and the many laughs together. I miss Jack and now Agnes they were good neighbors to me for the three years I lived next-door. The barbecues, the cookies, the homemade buns, and alot of smiles. God Bless you all.
