    Aunt Agnes was an amazing woman and a wonderful aunt. She was so kind and loving whenever I had the great fortune to see her. She was the last of that generation in our family and her loss really hits me close to my heart. I am so sorry for your loss, Aunt Agnes will always hold a special place in my heart and I will always cherish my memories of her.

    Impossible not to smile a little through the tears. Many many happy memories of my favorite aunt. Thoughtful always, kind beyond a fault and most of all, always made you feel like you were so so special to her.
    The Benson & Schinneller cousins are blessed to have the Mother’s we had. They set the standard for all that is good in the world. It is our gift from them to live our lives in the manner they lived theirs. Share the gift.
    Love always to my cousins.
