  1. Hello, I wish I could have attended the services for Aggie. If I new sooner I would have! Aggie was a sweet women and was our house mom while I attend Alfred State in 1983-1985. I continued to have contact with her until 1993, then lost contact. I think of her often and tried to find her again but just lost touch. She was such a stong and caring lady. My prayers are with her and her family. Love Kim Hartel Yourch, Farmington, NY
