So sad that Agnes has left us, but Heaven has been enriched by this wonderful & sweet lady who knew how to live life to the fullest & how to love with a most generous heart. Agnes was a loyal & loving friend to my mom for more than 20 years & I was lucky enough to become a part of their beautiful friendship. I’m quite sure they’ll soon find each other for a great big hug & playing their beloved game of Mexican Train. God Bless You, Sweet Agnes...all my love, Helga

What a beautiful lady! She was such a kind sole and always happy and a joy to spend time with. Mrs Zitnick and Trish help me to find clothes appropriate for my new job at Allstate after my four year commitment in the US Air Force. They both had such a great sense of fashion and it was always a pleasure to spend a day shopping with them. You will now get to celebrate in your heavenly home with Trish. Mark & Paula Bowers
