Janet, I'm so sorry about your mom's passing. What a truly amazing lady she was. My mom loved her dearly and while at Oakwood, your mom was her guiding light-taking her to activities and to the dining room etc. She would have been lost without her. My sincerest condolences to you and your family.

Agnes, I've known you all my life. You were already in your late twenties when I was born, and I liked you from the start. I grew to respect you, and my respect has continued to mature. You & your immediate & extended families have long been the people who are my true relatives. Your children whom I know best, viz., John, Jean, & Jerry, are markedly decent & honorable adults. They attest to your & Bud's wisdom as parents. Well done! If there's an afterlife, you are certainly in a good position to look after me, something that I'd appreciate. Thanks. Thank you, too, for keeping in contact with me & Gertrude after our move to Michigan. With the utmost respect, admiration, & love, Chris.

Mrs. Brugger has been for me the very best kind of teacher--one who teaches by example. Her life was an object lesson in humility, diligence, faithfulness, and self-giving love. I admired her, and am grateful to have known her. The seeds sown in her life will bear fruit in her family and others for generations to come. Heartfelt sympathies to all who loved her and miss her.

Aggie was a faith filled joyful Catholic who loved the Lord Jesus Christ. Aggie and Bud worked with me on the Catholic Enrichment Series when it was booming! We had Bishop Gumbleton and a one man play on Pope John the XXIII. We had great fun together serving others with their wonderful sense of humor. They made a very professional looking Catholic Enrichment Series Banner and stand that travelled around. Thank you Aggie for hosting us at your house. Well done good & faith full servant!
