Bill and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to Agnes's family. May years ago, Agnes lived down the street from us in Bettendorf. Our daughter, Tiffany,, was in elementary school at the time, and Agnes became Tiffany's "adopted" grandmother, thru a program that the elementary school offered. Tiffany adored Agnes, as we did, and Agnes became a very important person in Tiffany's llife.

Many years have passed , and Tiffany is now a grown woman with 2 children of her own..lives in Arizona, and still talks of the times she spent with "Grandma Agnes".

There are many people that come and go in our lives...a few touch us in ways that change us forever....and make us better just from knowing them..and we just wanted to let you know that you mother/grandmother made a difference in Tiffany's life,and for this we are very grateful.

Thank you for sharing Agnes with us...she was a wonderful Christian woman, and we feel very blessed for knowing her.

Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

Jean and Donna,
Our condolences on the loss of your mother. I'll always remember her as a kind, gentle woman whe had a pleasant word for everyone.
Our lives really entwined during our younger years with our Moms both being teachers and both involved in community clubs and activities together. Donna, do you remember when we were on the parade float for the Olin Centennial?
I also remember visits to your home after you moved to the Quad Cities.
I wanted you to know I was thinking of you. It seems so strange to have our parent's gone from us, but you can be certain our Mom's are sharing a discussion over a good book right now.
Fondly, Sally Abbott

I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the family of Mrs. Vrooman. I was looking at the newspaper and as soon as I saw her, I told my husband "she was my teacher at Lincoln grade school. She was a very kind and careing person. I remember her well. She will be looking down at all of us. I still remember her. God Bless
