I just wanted to say I am so, so sorry for your loss. Aggie was such a dear friend to me, but then again I know she was a dear friend to so many.

When I moved to Kokomo in 2003 to work as the secretary at Bible Baptist Church, I didn't know anyone at all. One of the pastors introduced me to Aggie my first Sunday here, and I could say the rest is history. She immediately took me under her wing, and my life was truly never the same after. I soon found myself agreeing to serve meals at the Rescue Mission alongside her on Tuesday afternoons.

Then she and I were paired up to lead a small group of girls in the youth group at the church. This meant meeting at Aggie's house (where it always smelled good, and there were TONS of snowmen around each winter) on Wednesday nights where we would sit around, eat (often banana pudding), and feel completely loved on by our sweet Aggie.

I'll never forget the first time we had a small group sleepover at her house. She insisted I sleep in one of the bedrooms, and that night, she literally physically tucked me into bed. :-) The next morning I woke up to the sound of her vacuuming right outside the bedroom door. When I came out of the room, she smiled with her contagious smile and innocently asked me if she had woken me up. :-)

It was not uncommon for her to call me at the church office and say, "Hey, are you hungry? I just made too much food, and I'm bringing you over some lunch." Of course when she showed up, it was actually food for multiple meals. On my wedding day, she provided brunch for our whole wedding party "just because."

She moved away several years ago now, but I still miss our movie nights. I miss our singing at a local nursing home with the youth group teens and then going out to McDonald's afterward for sundaes. I miss serving meals at the mission. I miss hanging out way too late at her house while I cried to her about being homesick. I miss hearing her tearfully talk about her dear Glen. I miss all the random things she somehow got us into just because of her generous, caring heart.

I know she was a dear friend to so many people, and I could talk forever about all the special memories I feel honored to have made with sweet Aggie. I will always treasure the times I had with this godly woman who touched me more deeply than she could have ever known. Because I knew her, I have been changed for good…

Sandy, Brenda, Greg, Ryan, Leslie and Spencer,

I am so sorry to hear of your mother's and grandmother's passing. She was certainly one of a kind lady. When i went to Kokomo, she immediately took me in as one of her "boys" and spoiled me all the time. She and Glen would always love on me and also tell me when I was making questionable decisions. They would never pass judgement, but say things in love. Aggie was such a model of service with all the meals she prepared, the people they kept in their home and the support of so many around them. Aggie will be missed greatly. I know she was a mom to me when I lived there in Kokomo, which I needed more than I knew at the time. She certainly displayed the fruit of the spirit each and every day!

Sandy and Brenda, I am so sorry for your loss. We know your mom is so much happier now, but that doesn't mean you won't miss her. She was a dear, sweet woman, and I'll never forget weekends at your house in Kokomo. I've been praying for you and will continue, because I know you will have hard days. Love and prayers.

It has been my privilege and delight to know Aggie since 1989. My (now) adult sons loved Aggie and Glenn so much; it was like having their Michigan grandparents right here in Kokomo. She was a wonderful support and sounding board for me when we both lost our husbands in 1998. (Shopper Aggie tried to turn me into a shopper too, but she failed at that.) I have missed my "around the corner" neighbor since her move to Florida, but we will see each other again. May her family exchange lots of hugs this week and revisit memories of her zest for life and her abilities to make everyone feel "at home."
My thoughts and prayers are with you all, JAS

Sandy, It is coincidental or God's plan that I found out about Aggie. Am on Facebook but don't do much. I was replying to a friend's request and read
about it on your post. So very sorry. I recall all the good times to Williamsburg and Key West and the many beautiful baskets she wove. She and your dad were such fun. Regret I did not know she was at Avow in Naples. I do not get there often but would have made the effort to see her. Is there a charity of her choice or her church that I could make a contribution to in her memory?? She was such a role model for what she believed as a Christian. She will be missed, but memories of her will live on. Love to all, Mary
