    Dear Cousins,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Aunt Aggie was the best…She brought much joy to Jim and myself. She was the only family member at my baby shower at Jimmy’s grandmothers in Farmington back in 1971. She loved sharing pictures of her family and we so enjoyed watching her eyes sparkle as she would share. She will be greatly missed. She is now with Uncle Kenny and no two could have been closer. A great joy to have had quality time with both of them. She was so proud that she was able to attend a family reunion of recent times. She so adored being with you all.

    I would like to say that the last time I was able to visit Aunt Agnes was back when I flew up to Minnesota from Texas to visit with my Grandmother ( Uncle Kenny’s Mother). this was when my Grandmother was “97” years old. she lived up in Wahkon Minnesota. If anyone know’s how I could possibly get in touch with any of my cousins up there I would really appreciate it. I’m not sure who is left. Eugene, Donald, Wallce, Marilyn, Randy,Shelly. If you could please help in this I thank you.A long lost cousin, David
