So sorry to hear about your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Sad to see that Aggie passed away, but joyful for her eternal life. We met Aggie at Prince of Peace while our father, John was in hospice care there. I had many a great conversation with Aggie, especially during meal times. She was always positive, encouraging and engaging and showed genuine concern with our situation. It was honor to get to know her this past Spring and Summer. God’s blessings to your family.
Sending lots of love to all of you, we will not be able to make it to SD, however you will be in our thoughts during this time.! Love Crystal, John, Rachel, Shauna, Alex, And Belle Reynolds
