Dear Agnes,

With much sadness, I wish you eternal peace. As you know, you have always taken up a special piece of my heart and memory. How many young Northerners can remember and claim they were given a bath by the Queen of Mobile?

Karin and I have always enjoyed your phone calls to say hello and ask how we're doing ... short as those calls were, we always loved to hear your voice.

As will all, the Crimson Tide will especially miss you. I have no doubt you'll be up there cheering them on.

Thanks for all the nice memories you given us. I look forward to seeing you in the next.

With much love, Dick
