I had fun driving Agnes to her weekly hair appointments and other miscellaneous trips as a driver for BCSSI. She was ornery in the sweetest way and we good-naturedly gave each other a hard time. She had a life well lived and I enjoyed her many stories. She will be missed by many but she often spoke of her late husband and one day joining him. Did not expect it to be so soon

As a driver for BCSSI, I had the opportunity to get to know Agnes. I found her to be an interesting lady with a sassy personality. I always enjoyed our time together. I will miss Agnes.
