Agnes was a dear friend of my Aunt Anna Smith's and a supervisor when I worked summers at the telephone company. She was a fine lady and fellow parishioner at Sacred Heart Parish. May she rest easy in God's arms in Eternity. With deepest sympathy to all of you...

Please accept my deepest sympathy.
I worked with Agnes at the telephone company way back when. She was a classy lady and we had many laughs together.
I will be out of town and not able to attend her service but please know you and Agnes are in my thoughts and prayers.
