My prayers to Agnes' family. Queenie as I've learned she was called. My heart is shocked that just a few days ago we shared conversation after church. I will always remember her willingness to have her grandkids participate in the children's message - lemons or lemonaide. There is joy and healing in memories. May God be near you all the next few days.

It seems like such a cliche to say that my thoughts and prayers are with you, but they are. I am so sorry for your loss.
