We are so sorry for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Aggie. From the parties at her house, making clothes with her, going to the zoo and even attending a concert with her. We all will have a big hole in our hearts. The memories are what we will hold on to forever. Rest in peace Aunt Aggie. Prayers and love to all the family.

My heart is broken, I love Aggie very much, but I will see her again. She was a friend first, then a sister-in-law but always my sister. Aggie has her wings. My love to Tom, Peggy, Tina, Lori and Jimmy

Aggie was the oldest of us 8 brother and sisters. I will miss her everyday because she is the one responsible for me meeting my wife of 50 years. I wish that I would of had more time with her over the last 50+ years. She is now with Mon, Dad, Shorty and Barb and someday I will be with them again.

My sweet oldest sister!!! Oh how I miss you already and I think both of us knew last August you wouldn’t be back as we hugged and cried and hugged and cried! What she didn’t know was I bawled like a baby for days after she left!!! She always looked forward to “coming home” every year for the reunion. The last few years she wasn’t able to help us cook like she always did so last year she just had to do something so she came into the kitchen, having to stop every little bit to catch her breath, and sat at the end of the table and helped us prepare some of the food for the reunion!!! She was happy to being helping us again!! ☺️ She loved coming to our farm in Alabama! And loved being outside doing something!!! In fact when she was 60ish we were putting up a pipe fence and entrance gate and she was out there helping and DROVE the tractor to help Milton!!! Now every time I go in and out I will remember her helping when I look at that gate!!! The reunions won’t be the same but oh the memories that we have!!!
Love to all of you 😘❤️

I want everyone to know that we had the most loving, caring mother in the world to us. Way too many memories to share but she loved us unconditionally and disciplined us as needed. Especially us 3 sisters fighting or not cleaning our rooms. She was fun. She took us to the park all the time when we were young during the summer and made us go to school when we had to. She nurtured us when we were sick. She kept us fed, made sure we had efficient sleep. She made sure I cleaned up the dead bird and mice trophy's my cat brought home, even the mouse she had to step on that was still alive when she let the cat in. She was a good relative, friend and neighbor to all. As we all grew older and left home she was there whenever we needed her and gave advice only when asked. I love you Mom. Until we meet again enjoy your loved ones especially Robbie, Granny & Granddaddy. I love you so much.

Uncle Tommy and Girls,
I’m such at a loss for words for what you must be going through and feeling at this time. I have fond memories of wanting to stay over any chance I had when we would visit in my younger days. Aunt Aggie was a great person to everyone. She will be sorely missed and always remembered in my heart. Our Deepest Condolences to you all.
