  1. Fargo ND
    Hi Squeak!

    I just got an email from Katie to say that Agnes had died. I missed it in the paper, yet wanted to be certain you know you have my loving thoughts about Agnes. What a joy to know!

    As I was telling Katie, when I would drive by ManorCare, I would see the bird feeder in the window and wonder how Agnes was and if she was still feeding the birds. Then, while looking for a picture of a former resident, I ran across the picture of her birds which we hung on the wall.

    Once again, my sympathies to all.
